I appreciate your question.

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 see your surgeon or schedule a Skype phone call, I would advise you to ask him/her to refer you to someone locally to best manage your post operative 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!
