Bruising Under After Septo-Rhinoplasty

I had a Septo-Rhinoplasty done 5 months back. It was a 6-hour operation. I had an extremely deviated septum and a big hump. My nose tip was too broad. I had to get all these corrected. But now, my major concern is the post-surgery bruising under my eyes. I had absolutely no pain after the surgery. I had terrible bruising under eyes few days after the surgery, but now it's better. However, it ha been 5 months now. Is there any way I can get rid of it completely?

Our office recommends Bruisestick ointment containing Arnica and Bromelain after surgery to reduce the resolution time of bruising after cosmetic surgery.

Bruising After Rhinoplasty

Discoloration of the eyelid skin secondary to bruising after rhinoplasty may take a year or longer to resolve. It will gradually fade. A minimal amount of makeup will help. If you are a male or a lady not experienced with makeup, get professional help.

It is best for you to wait.

 It will go away, but it will take up to a year or more in some patients for the bruising to completely resolve. Wait the full year. Can't make it go away faster.
