Packing after rhinoplasty
Hi natalievvdr,Best solution is to ask your doctor about this. There are different type of nasal packs. Some of them have a hole to allow air passage, sometimes if the tampon is small it is possible to breath around it. You are talking about splints. Splints are usually silicon made and should have some kind of fixation into the nose. But don't worry. Even the splints go out completely it usually do not give a serious harm to the result of the operation. Sincerely
