Are permanent sutures used in septoplasty behind the nose tip?

Sutures during septoplasty
If only a septoplasty was performed then typically all the sutures will be dissolvable; usually gone within several weeks. If any tip work was done at the same time (via closed rhinoplasty approach) then it is possible longer lasting sutures were also used. You likely have nothing to worry about but this is a question best directed back to your surgeon. Happy healing!
