Hello all, I had a septoplasty with a rhinoplasty in march of 2010. I healed very quickly, in about a month. I began to realize that my nose is a bit crooked and it looks like there is a bit of a dent. This may be silly, but I'm not sure if it's part of my fault. I got a facial 6 months after my surgery and the facialist did pick at my nose quite aggressively. Could that have interfered with the healing of my nose? Thank you!

Septoplasty and facial
No the facial did not hurt your nose or septum. If you are worried about the appearance go see you surgeon. You did nothing wrong. Good luck, Dr Commons.

Facial after septorhinoplasty contributing to crooked nose
Hi, 6-months after rhinoplasty your nose should be stable enough not to be harmed by extractions or a facial. So it is highly unlikely that the facial did any harm or contributed to your nose getting crooked. Most likely the swelling is subsiding, now revealing some of the underlying imperfections.
