I had a secondary rhinoplasty 7 months ago.The swelling was almost gone but I still had occasional swelling in the morning.Three days ago my doc decided to make a kenalog injection in my nose.He also taped it and said to keep the tape for a week.After three days i can see my nose is super upturned and swollen under the tape.Is this normal?shouldn't the kenalog be already absorbed at this time?and shouldn't it reduce the swelling instead of increasing it?i'm very concerned.thanks
Swollen and Upturned Nose After Kenalog Injections?
Doctor Answers (1)
Upturned nose, 7 months post op
Where did he inject the nose and how much volume was injected? Kenalog injected work over a period of 2 months dissolving out the thick scar. Return to your surgeon + have him/her explain the changes to you.
