Unusually Thick Scarring Between the Skin and Cartilage 10 Months Post Op
I had an open septo/rhinoplasty 10 months ago (major work in a 3.5 hour surgery). My nose got unusually thick scarring between the skin and cartilage, which makes it appear puffy like it is still swollen. My surgeon (an ENT and plastic surgeon who has an excellent reputation) only wants to remove the slight hump in the middle of my nose, but worries too much about removing the scarring or messing with the skin. Is there anything that can be done to get rid of the uniformed internal scarring?
