Is it normal to have sutures visible inside nostrils after 3 months?

Sutures still present at 3 months post op
It can take a few months for the dissolvable stitches to actually dissolve. If they are bothering you, schedule an appointment to see your surgeon so that he or she can trim them down.
Sutures still present
It is common for absorbable sutures to be used inside the nose as well as externally for a rhinoplasty. Depending on the specific type of suture used, these can take a few months to dissolve. If they are becoming irritating, I recommend you contact your surgeon as they can easily be trimmed.
