Should the Cast and Stitches from an Open Rhinoplasty Be Removed Within 7 Days to Avoid Scarring?
It's been four days since having my primary open rhinoplasty. I would like to know when stitches and sutures need to be removed by, to prevent scars from forming? I am aware from my research that most people have their cast/stiches removed within 7-10 days following the op. My cast and stiches are scheduled to be removed 12 days after the operation - Is it risky from a scarring perspective to leave these in for 12 days instead of 7-10?
