6 weeks post op, some advices:
Thank you very much for enquire.
It's too early to make value judgments with 6 weeks after a rhinoplasty.
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.

Nose bleed 6 weeks post op?
Hello Softhrowaway,It is possible you did damage in your nose by picking at crusts. The crusts indicate the area is still healing. It is the same as picking a scab on the skin. If you pick too much you can destroy some of the underlying framework (cartilage) of the nose and be left with a hole in your septum. Knocking and bumping your nose so soon after surgery can also disrupt much of the work that was done. I'd recommend you follow up with your surgeon sooner rather than later to take a look at everything. I'd also recommend you keep your finger out of there as continued picking can lead to further damage. I hope this helps and good luck.
Good morning!Even though your sutures have dissolved, the tissue in your nose especially covering your cartilage is still very thin and friable- you very well could have done some damage by picking at it.I would consult with your PS ASAP to be sure you do not have exposed cartilage in your nasal cavity.I hope this helps
