Rhinoplasty

This appears to be a dissolvable suture that was placed to close a mucosal incision inside your nose.  These usually dissolve on their own.  Any dorsal irregularities you notice now may resolve as swelling improves.  It is best to wait a few weeks.

Appears as a suture? But why have you NOT called your chosen operative surgeon FIRST!. Go see him/her TODAY.
