Whether your surgery went perfect or not you still have concerns and problems so I would make an appointment with your surgeon and discuss these issues. Six days post surgery you still need to be seeing your surgeon for follow up appointments and to discuss any questions or concerns you may have. Personally, I love to see my patients as often as their schedule allows even if it is just to say hello and see their smile! Best regards, Michael V. Elam, M.D.
