Tomorrow it will be two weeks since I had my revision nose surgery.
This past Monday I went to the surgeon and got my stiches out.
The incision down my nose looks pretty good now and I think it will heal and smooth out over time.
However, I was a bit disappointed in the surgical manipulation that was done by doctor in the right lower corner of my nose where it meets my cheek. The incision there didn’t heal as well as the surgeon had hoped after the stitches in that area were removed. The surgeon now wants to wait another 6 to 8 weeks to let things settle down a bit in that area so he can assess if I will need a 3rd revision surgery to fix that spot so there isn’t a scar there. He said sometimes things can heal on their own and so he doesn’t want to rush things as he said it’s easier to work with and to correct after some of the natural healing takes place. So for now I must patiently wait a bit longer.
In the meantime, I have to apply vasoline over that area several times a day and cover that corner with a piece of tan paper tape to disguise that scar a bit so it isn’t as noticeable.
The scar down my cheek from my 1st surgery is still a bit noticeable, but I am hoping over time is will fade and blend in a bit better.
So…for the moment I am still a work in progress and just have to deal with the cosmetic inconveniences for a while longer. Hey…I been dealing with all this since January (for 8 months now)…so what’s a few more months. Oh well …so for the momement I am still a bit “Nozy” !
Hope you all have a great weekend!
