After 6 days my stitches were removed at the end of the nose (columella). Should I apply ointment to this area?

Ointment after sutures removed from Rhinoplasty
You should ask your surgeon. We usually have specific preferences. However, I have people stop applying ointment to the incision after sutures are removed.
