Removing dead skin using tweezers (1 year after rhinoplasty). (photos)

Dear Doctors I was trying to remove dead skin around my nose using tweezers internally and externally. However I accidently pinched the skin of nose with the tweezers, it did hurt for a second , and seems a little bit swollen. My question is did I permanently damage my nose and is this swelling permanent? Your sincerely

At 1 year out from your rhinoplasty, I would recommend scheduling an anniversary appointment with your surgeon. She/he can see your 1 year result and evaluate the area that you pinched.
