Dear Miller,
Thanks for contacting hcm
you seem to have got some inflammatory reaction to either some stich leftover/ infection/ ischemia because of the smoke and alcohol.
If it is the last you need to consult your operating bestplasticsurgeon/consultant so that he can guide you better how to reduce your edema, lest you have permanent scarring.
