Gap in nostrils where stitches were after a rhinoplasty
- You are very smart to bring this up
- You see your surgeon who can freshen the edges and sew them back together
- This will help avoid a wider scar in the future
Based on your photo, you should alert your surgeon about your nostril incision 1 week following rhinoplasty surgery.
Hope this helps you.
