Removal of in try nasal splints after rhinoplasty takes only a few seconds

Thank you for your question. I understand your concerns and fears as everyone has them when they had internal nasal splints. However removing the splints takes only a second or 2 and can be done very comfortably so that any discomfort is very quick and is over in a second. I am sure your plastic surgeon will be very comfortable so please don't worry.
