When will my skin return to normal follow Rhinoplasty op?

So I am thrilled with the results of my nose job! However, since my op my skin just hasn't been the same. I have quite oily skin and my nose is really textured and bumby following rhino. I also have tiny bumbs all over my cheeks and forehead. They are the type of bumps which can only be seen in certain lights, especially when I wear makeup, I.e. Natural bright light. I'm almost 3 months post op now. Is this something to do with the lymphatic drainage of the nose following the operation?

In response to the trauma of a rhinoplasty the skin can become hyperactive. Acne and small collections of oil are fairly common. This will eventually return to normal. Discussed care of the skin with your surgeon

Thank you very much for enquire.

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.
