8.5 months since the rhinoplasty, they placed 2mm silicone after shaving down the bridge, and raised my tip with ear cartilage. Issue:reddish line on the bridge with a small bump (no pain/swelling) and my tip is red, dry uneven due to skin peeling. Would laser fix my tip skin, is it okay to put lotion, will it ever go away naturally; Is the red line permanent? what causes it and revision necessary? (have a thin skin so will that complicate revision?) I can't see a doc now due to distance.

Redness after silicone implant
Although the redness may be from benign vascular changes in the skin the possibility of infection must be considered - you should see your surgeon to have your nose evaluated
See your surgeon ASAP for the redness, especially in the face of silicone. Will be concerned about infection.
