Amount of time to remove nasal packing after surgery (Nasal Surgery)
The length of time for packing to remain in the nose is dependent on exactly what was done during the procedure. Generally speaking, nasal packing will remain in the nose for 2-3 days following an uneventful septoplasty and/or turbinate surgery. Best of luck, Dr. Michael Omidi
An in-person exam with a board-certified plastic surgeon is the best way to assess your needs and provide true medical advice.

If you cannot get in touch with his office you should go unannounced. It's important to receive guidance this early after having rhinoplasty.
