I just got a rhinoplasty done and my nostrils were taken in to give a more slimming nose. When the doctor removed the sutures and stitiches out I notices that there are small holes where the sutures were taken out. Will those fill up and go away?
Rhinoplasty Sutures Left Small Holes in my Nose. Is This Permanent?

Suture marks from rhinoplasty
If you had your procedure performed recently, I would not be too worried.
After the sutures are removed, the small tract are open for a few days, but will close very quickly.
