Does it hurt to have nasal packaging/tubes in the nostrils removed after rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty and Packing
It's really easy and has minimal pain. Most patients of mine say it doesn't hurt at all. Many patients will have minimal discomfort and a strange pulling feeling.
Overall, packing removal after rhinoplasty is easy. Sometimes people will have minimal bleeding. Be relaxed. This stops quickly.
Remember, bruising and swelling take time to resolve. Your nose won't be perfect the first time you see it. Let healing occur and swelling resolution.
