1.5 weeks post rhinoplasty i tried to sniffle , the kind where you subconsciously close one nostril by moving you mouth to the side. i had pain on the side of nose mid way down like i tore a stitch. i did speak to my surgeon he said as long as there is no swelling or bleeding it should be fine. but i am still experiencing discomfort in that area 5 days later. no swelling just twinges of pain every now and then. will this heal correctly? looks okay?

Stitches after rhinoplasty
thanks for your question. There are usually some dissolving stitches after rhinoplasty and the area remains tender for a while. You're probably fine. See your surgeon per routine and they will take a look
