Doctor hasn't removed my stitches?
11 months ago
It's been nearly three weeks now and I see my surgeon tomorrow for him to replace my tape and massage my nose. He hasn't mentioned the removal of my stitches that are on the outside??? I know the ones inside the nose dissolve. But I'm scared it'll scar and it'll be noticeable forever!!!:'(

The external sutures should come out after a week. Good he is taking them out tomorrow.
