Doctor said stitches will dissolve by themselves after 3 weeks, yet they are still inside my nose. Should I remove it? (photo)

Stitches 3 weeks after surgery
The exposed part of the dissolved stitches will fall off after a month or so. You need not remove them, but if you are so concerned about it, have your surgeon do it for you. As for the upturned tip, it usually drops more in 6-12 months so there should be nothing for you to worry about at this period.
