Can Sutures Inside the Nose Unravel Due to Smiling Widely After Cast off (8 Days Post-op)?
I had my cast taken off 8 days post-op. 7 hours later I smiled a lot with no problem, half an hour later I smiled again and I felt my left nostril (somewhere in the middle of the tip of the nose and the eyes) unravel (the only way I could describe it). It was previously numb but not anymore. My surgeon did a septorhinoplasty, he carried out trans and inter domal sutures. Have I ruined my surgeons work? Or at 8 days post-op the sutures have sufficiently healed so the the nerves reconnected?
