Dissolvable sutures used in rhinoplasty and septoplasty
For the last 25 years, we have used dissolvable sutures inside the nose, so the sutures do not need to be removed. We also do not place any packing inside the nose which is painful.

What to expect during suture removal after rhinoplasty
I usually tell patients it feels something like getting hairs tweezed. Some patients are completely unfazed, while some are very sensitive to tugging on the sutures.
