String in nostril post-rhinoplasty
It is probably a stitch that has not dissolved. Ask your doctor about it and it can be removed.

The string in the nostril is probably a suture. This may be absorbable, but you should contact your surgeon to determine if this is the case. Do not remove it yourself. Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA

I would recommend contacting your surgeon. It's possible the string could be connected to something that would make it dangerous for you to remove on your own, but only your surgeon will know for sure.
