Piece of flesh sticking out of esophagus after cosmetic procedure. Serious?

I just had a cosmetic procedure done Monday day, it lasted 6 hours, that night when I was home I realize that I have a piece my own meat sticking out of the back of my esofagus, my surgeon said it is only swollen and it will go down in a few days, today is Thursday and it is still there! I m really freaking out because every little thing I eat irritates it! So I m not really eating... Do you think this might be something serious?

Thanks for the query.

Dont worry your surgeon mentioned it correctly,

It must be due to swelling.

Gargle with warm normal saline.

This will help in faster relief.

Please meet a dermatologist for exact diagnosis.
