Issues after rhinoplasty

I am sorry to hear about your issues following Rhinoplasty surgery. In general local reactions to dissolvable sutures can occur but as always please check back with your surgeon to be sure.
Good luck and I hope this helps.

Concerns regarding the appearance of my nose five days after rhinoplasty

  • It is difficult to tell from the photograph you've provided just what is concerning you. Based on the photographs I can't tell that anything seems out of order. I suggest you see your surgeon and let him evaluate your nose in a face-to-face basis.
