Dent & abrasion from nose split (photos)

I'm concerned about the dent you can see from the splint, will it close up/fill in? What more can I do to have it heal faster?

Abrasion on nose from splint being too tight. Keeping it moist as surgeon instructed Thanks for helping those of us who worry and can't sleep.

In my 34 years I have NEVER seen this... Best to avoid sun at all costs. Use scar remedies now. Possible laser therapy or PRP infusion micro droplet to improve healing...
