How Can I Remedy Nose Discoloration One Year After Surgery? (photo)

In April ‘11, I had a rhinoplasty reduction surgery in Bangkok. Three months later I had a small revision surgery to remove excess bone. Now I have a small, bluish discoloration spot at the hump removal site. I went back to see the Dr. in April ‘12 but he only told me to wait and give it time. I asked him if a whitening serum would help and he said to try it which I’ve yet to do as I have very sensitive skin. So, any ideas on what the cause may be and any suggestions as to how to fix it?

There are different types of coloration. One where the skin become a little darker brown like and there is a bleaching cream for that your doctor can order,. What you seem to have is new blood vessel formation and for that one or two laser passes can correct the problem.
