Will this change? Bumped my nose at 6 wks post-op,then massaged too hard at 12 weeks post-op(have since stopped), hitting a blood vessel under my skin that caused half the nose to reswell a 2nd time. Now,18 wks post op,one side of the nose (healed side) is "flesh colored" while the other side (w/ the blood vessel)is pale/overprojected/lumpy.My surgeon checked my nose; I had a Medpor implant put in the tip & it's intact.I'm not touching my nose anymore, but why is the "unhealed" side so discolored?Will this heal?
Update: 4.5 months post-up & bumped my nose 6 wks post-op, then massaged it too hard on 1side, hitting a blood vessel under the skin.Massive blob of scar tissue around tip,but it is no longer hard on top, only on the sides. (The problem w/ the massage was 6 wks ago, 3 mths post-op).The nose is overprojected/bulbous around a Medpor tip-top graft, but looked great by week 8 when unswollen (evening). Doctor refused kenalog at check-up;is the softness a sign that this is permanent scar tissue, not swelling?
