See your surgeon for followup if you suspect a problem

It is always a good idea to return to your surgeon for followup after Cosmetic Plastic Surgeries.  If you feel something unusual in your nose, it is a good idea to see if there is something he/she needs to take care of.

I'm sorry, but I cannot see the inside of your nose on my screen. I suggest that you call your surgeon for an appointment to examine you. The good news is that you are "happy with the nose job".

Occasionally a suture may cause this problem. See your surgeon who can take a look inside.

If you feel something inside your nose, see your surgeon.

It is a simple matter for your surgeon to look in your nose and see if there is any obstruction.  Make an appointment and let him handle it.
