Possible infection in rhinoplasty?
The skin looks red and angry. It probably is a cellulitis. The antibiotics is fine but the stitches also need to come out. Please contact your surgeon ASAP.
1 week post op, some advices:
Swelling after a rhinoplasty depends of the surgery complexity.
In this regard, the nasal swelling Post-op It can last from two weeks to two months.
To reduce this swelling, I recommend you perform delicates daily lymphatic drainage massage therapy over the face (around the nose) avoid sun exposure, and take pain/inflamation pills, as your surgeron precribe you.
