Suture Pulled out Just Below "Lateral Crus", Did I Damage Results?

Hi. I got rhinoplasty about 2 months ago. Anyways, 1 week post op, the doctor removed the internal splints about 3 days after this, the inside of my nose was very itchy I couldnt help but itch inside my nose, and i pulled on the internal hairs turns out it wasnt the internal hairs, it was a suture hanging out I pulled down on it, and the suture came out it was about 1cm long Did i just stuff up my nose And please dont say "ask your doctor"... I will ask him when I see him next PP

Suture out at 10 days

Most likely the suture that came out at 10 days was one of the dissolving sutures on the incisions inside the nose - these are meant to come out

Did Suture Removal Damage Rhinoplasty Result?

It is extremely unlikely that you did any harm when the suture was removed 2 months after your surgery. An examination of your nose by your surgeon when you see him will answer your question.
