Sutures and splint shouldn't bother much after rhinoplasty
Splint removal after rhinoplasty
If you already had the packing out I would say the worst is over! The splint removal typically does not hurt, it could feel like a small amount of pressure, but when it is gently removed it usually doesn't bother the patients. The suture removal can be compared to "nose hairs being pulled" so it could sting but is typically not bad for the patient. The nurse will most likely clean the crust off, and you can ask that they do beforehand. Best of luck!
