Pros: I am still waiting to determine this. I am only 6 days postop. Hopefully, the pros will be that I will have an improved appearance.
Cons: Worrying about infection. Cost. I did it to help improve my appearance and give me more confidence.
I am worried about infection. I am 6 days postop from Open Rhinoplasty surgery. I am taking Keflex twice daily. However, I missed one dose by accident. The last couple of days the tip of my nose is a pinkish red color. The incisions do not look reddened though. The only drainage from my nose I've had is pink tinged, clear, or a slightly yellowish color. My nose is not hurting but it has a tingling achy feel. I do not have a temperature. I still have my splint/dressing on, and I go back to the doctor in two days to have it removed. I am just wondering if I should try to see him sooner if there could be a possiblity of infection? Or is it normal for the nose to be a little red following rhinoplasty?
