Weird Smell in Nose at 4 months Post Op
This is something that you are going to have assessed in person. If you can't get in to see one of your surgeon's colleagues then schedule a consultation with another board certified plastic surgeon in your area.
Smell inside nose after rhinoplasty
Thank you Alice for your query.
It sounds like you've developed a small area of infection inside the nose, usually where a suture (stitch) such as vicryl was used. The good news is that vicryl gets broken down by the body, and once that happens, the smell will go away.
I have had one of 2 of my own patients experience something similar, and fortunately, it all settled with time.
Hope that helps.
