Soreness after a rhinoplasty.

Hello, please help. It's been 10 months since my rhinoplasty. I seem to be healing just fine up until yesterday my nose started to get sensitive and feels a bit sore or swollen inside. Can anyone tell me if it serious. Thank you!!!

Dear tammiwenn, I would contact your surgeons office for a follow up or schedule a consultation and examination with another surgeon if your primary surgeon is not in your area. After an examination hopefully a diagnosis can be made to determine your cause of pain. It is very unusual to have any pain ten months post surgery and especially pain that has had a quick onset. Best regards, Michael V. Elam, M.D.
