Rhinoplasty Sutures Left Small Holes in my Nose. Is This Permanent?

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?

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.
