Options for Removal of Nose Surgery Scars

I have done a rhinoplasty to my nose 4Y ago and the result was perfect. After 10M an infection surfaced and i had two bumps in my nose. After two re-surgeries the bumps were removed unfortunately leaving two scars and the shape has changed also. 2 month ago i did a re-surgery, the surgeon used a facia graft; there was an improvement but not much. He told me that he will use a filler then laser after wards, shall I do it? What about the shape, he told me that this is only bruising!will it disa

Although there are some pitted scars and some fullness of the tip, based on your problems with prior surgeries- I would NOT recommend further surgery. Fraxel laser and Pulse Dye Laser may help smoothe the surface irregularities. Be very cautious! Dr. G.

Sory about your scarring on your nose. Sometimes dermabrasion or microlaserpeels can help smooth out the edges a  bit.  Speak with your doctor.
