What could be the reason for slow, poor healing? (Photos)
2 months ago
After rhinoplasty over 2 years ago and revision rhinoplasty over a year ago, the wound healed slowly and poorly. I’d had facial sutures twice years ago with no healing problems. I don’t smoke, rarely drink alcohol, and took zinc, vitamin C tablets and sufficient protein in my diet. First photo is 10 days post-surgery, which I posted here but received no response. Why does it heal poorly? I suppose revision surgery would be pointless, so would filler treatment be the temporary solution?

I have never seen a scar on the external nose for a rhinoplasty!!!!, But I guess that is Thailand invention
Revision rhinoplasty scar
That is an unusual incision for a rhinoplasty. You have thicker skin so the scar will be more noticeable. Fillers might help.
