Nose peeling after surgery

Nose peeling after surgery

Postby holly_the_cool » Mon Jun 29, 2009 6:54 pm

I had my surgery on June 17th, 12 days ago and today a layer of skin peeled off it. Well actually I peeled most of it off, it was kind of like a sunburn peel. What happened was it got really dry a couple of days ago and then the skin started to peel off. It doesn't hurt at all or anything, I was just wondering if this was normal. Also I was wondering when the swelling on the tip will go down. I know it will be months and months before all the swelling is gone, but I was wondering if the tip swelling will go down drastically soon. Also, I am kind of concerned i have been messing with my nose too much. I bump it alot with my hands (nothing too hard or anything) and I aways am running my figners along it lightly. Is it still to fragil to do that. Like I said my nose doesn't hurt at all and I can breath through it just fine. The only unusal thing is the tip is totally numb so my main questions are:
when does avg. tip swelling go down?
did anybody elses nose peel?
should i not be touching my nose?
when will numbness go away?
anyways thanks in advance for replying

My nose also peeled a lot a few days ago. I peeled most of it myself though just like you heh. I take that it's normal, I also had a little bit of exposure to the sun before it happened so I think that may have contributed. But now it sort of looks like I have a white spot in the middle of the nose because the rest of my face is tan. Also the tip of my nose got more swollen from this but again I think it may have been from the sun. And I too run down my nose and touch it I think a little too much, I'm wondering the same thing!

My bridge was swollen a week after when I got my cast off. I am 13 days post op and most the bridge swelling is down. The tip swelling goes up and down depending on what I am doing or the time of day. But it stays swollen. I just would like it to go all away before I start school again late august. Other than that I really don't mind. I think the cast being on the skin so long might be what causes the peeling of the nose. After my nose job my skin peeled and then yesterday I was looking at it in the mirror and noticed that it was blackhead city. It is all I have in me not to go to the mirror and try to squeeze them out because my tip is numb and I know it wont even hurt haha.

Nose peeling after surgery

Postby Leesa7 » Mon Jul 06, 2009 1:26 am

I'm 8 months post-op, and the skin is still not fully back to normal. It was peeling a lot the first few months (three or so), and though it does not peel as much now, it's still dry at times and very oily at others. Also, the pores were huge! It's getting better, but very slowly. I know others that did not have any skin problem, but I guess people react differently. So I'm still waiting for my skin to go back to normal. When the time comes (probably not too soon after surgery), you can start exfoliating the skin or using Biore or something else to help with the pores and peeling, but check with your PS when is a good time to start doing that.
