Scar after rhinoplasty? (Photo)

Please remain patient and follow the recovery guidelines as you are not fully recovered until the 9 to 12 month post-op mark, and sometimes even longer. I suggest that you consult with your board certified facial plastic surgeon.
Scar after rhinoplasty
Because this is your second surgery it will take longer for the skin to heal and longer for the scar to improve. Also because this area has been operated on previously the scar may be more noticeable initially. I would f/u with your rhinoplasty surgeon to ensure your results are expected and further discuss long term expectations.
