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!
