Nose Pulled Downward at 6 Weeks Post Op, was Mostly Settled, & Now is Not Sore, but Different, even at 3 Mths Post-op?

Accident at 6 wks post-op; nose pulled downward, swelled up pink, & then went back to normal color in a week but is renewed puffy even 6 wks after accident,12 post-op.Trimmed medpor implant/tip elevation;nose is long/puggish again, after it seemed unswollen/healed (1 day before hit). Had a consult & surgeon look inside, saw no sign of infection, but base (where implant is) is rigid, bulging down. Will see operating surgeon,but I'm worried.

    The best advice that can be given without pictures is to see your surgeon for an exam.
