Nose Graft Became Visible While Running, Six Weeks Post Revision Rhinoplasty, Normal?

Hello, I had my revision rhinoplasty six weeks ago, I love the results despite a little swelling. But over all the nose looks really good and natural. I resumed my exercise routine two days ago; today while I was running with extreme intensity I've noticed that my nose's gotten really thin and my graft became visible starting from the supra tip till the tip of the nose. Is this normal? Right after I finished exercising my nose looked fine and the graft wasn't visible anymore. Any opinions?

It's hard to say if what you saw was normal. I'd have your surgeon examine your nose to make sure everything is healing okay. Usually, intense exercise at this stage in the healing process will lead to extra tissue swelling which may be related to what you noticed after your run.
