1 week post Rhinoplasty, the lining of nose and incision are inflamed and painful, is it normal?

I had rhinoplasty/ septoplasty/ turbinate reduction surgery 7 days ago. The lining of my nose is extremely inflamed and painful. My incision is also painful and red. Is this normal 1 week after surgery?

Go see your surgeon today to see whether it is normal healing or if you are developing an infection.
