Since there has been a change in your post op course, please contact your surgeon so he/she can examine you and recommend the most appropriate treatment plan at this time. If you are unable to schedule a Skype follow up with your surgeon, it would be a very good idea to ask him/her to refer you to someone locally to best manage your post op care.
The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery.
Best of luck!

You can still develop serious complications during your recovery and you are not out of the woods yet.
Seeing a local PS is an excellent idea.
