Skin induration and discoloration over osteotomy sites 3 weeks after rhinoplasty (Photo)
Doctor Answers (2)
Do you know what kind of osteotomies?
The most important thing is to see your surgeon. There are many things that this could be, but I suggest double check you didn't have transcutaneous osteotomies as this would explain everything.
Maybe external Osteotomy
I would ask your surgeon if he did external osteotomy work instead of internal. When you have this answer discuss with your surgeon what can be done to improve the healing process. I personally do all internal osteotomy work so I am not familiar with the recovery process. Best regards, Michael V. Elam, M.D.
