Are 13 days too long to remove stitches after alar base reduction surgery? (photos)
I've broken my nasal bone then I've decided to undergo a (second) rhinoplasty. So, besides correcting my crooked nose, I asked the surgeon to reduce the alar base and my tip. I underwent surgery on July 13th, and the surgeon told me he will remove the stitches and the bandages only on July 25th, 13 days after the surgery. I am really concerned, because I've read that the stitches should be removed earlier to minimize scars. What should I do? And there's some dried blood around it. Is it normal?
