Steroid injections after rhinoplasty
While steroid injections typically deliver a temporary reduction in scar formation, many specialists recommend letting time do the work of healing. Steroid injections can cause significant harm as well, creating indentations or destruction of normal tissue. You should also keep in mind that it may often take a year for the healing process to be completed and final results of the procedure to manifest themselves. If you have concerns, an in-person exam with a board-certified specialist would be the best way to assess your needs and obtain expert medical advice. Best of luck! Dr. Michael Omidi.
