What is this crusty wire that was in my nose post- rhinoplasty?

while i was cleaning my incisions after my rhinoplasty,.i was feeling that my breathe is still blocked,i felt that a small crust is blocking the nasal airways,so i entered the Q-tip deep inside the nostril and removed that crust full of tiny wires!!!

I would recommend returning to your surgeon for an exam to evaluate you.
