Indent Along Nostril After Rhinoplasty
I had a septo-rhinoplasty + tonsilectomy done a week ago. I saw my surgeon yesterday and mentioned that my external splint looked rather crooked, but he didn't seem to be concerned. I have a noticable indent (like a chunk of skin is missing) next to where my tip stitches were inside my nostril, and it doesn't look like the other nostril. Is this something normal and will eventually heal or go away?
Probably related to swelling
