Is it OK to use Glycolic Acid Cream Post-Rhinoplasty?

I use a glycolic acid cream to lessen fresh red marks and control acne, I had a closed rhinoplasty a week ago, I want to use this product again avoiding the nose and the area directly around the nose, is it okay to use it on my face again?

it is no problem. good skin care is always appropriate, especially when the skin was not operated on. good luck

Using the Glycolic, on your face, shouldn't be a problem after yor Rhinoplasty as long as you leave it off  your nose.
