Why would the bruising under my eyes from Open Rhinoplasty suddenly be taking so long to improve?

Post op bruising
Sadly, without photos or better yet, seeing you in person, it is impossible to determine what's going on. Every patient heals at his or her own rate, particularly when it comes to bruising. However, since there has been an increase in your bruising, I think it would be a good idea to schedule an appointment with your surgeon to be assessed in person. Always best to err on the side of caution.
Bruising after rhinoplasty
It's hard to answer your question without photos or an exam. Particularly deep bruising can take several weeks to resolve completely, and sometimes bruising results in skin discoloration (called hemosiderin staining) that can take several months to go away. You would do best to check in with your rhinoplasty surgeon for his/ her recommendations. Depending on your issue, time, laser treatment, or certain topical therapies can help. Good luck!
