  1. Hello doctor, good time
    About 7 years ago, I had a rhinoplasty
    An absorbable suture was used
    A part of our nose is protruding from the inside
    I pressed now and the bulge has passed from the inside
    And it hurts a lot, is it possible that there is a problem? And is there a stitch left inside?
    Thank you for helping me

    1. The answer of Mr. Dr. Majid Rasti, nose surgeon of Isfahan:
      It is unlikely if an absorbable suture was used
      Because it won't last long after that
      But there are other reasons that you should definitely consult your doctor

      And besides them, it may become inflamed, this is not the reason for infection, but intranasal ointments should be used regularly three times a day

  4.

I just saw a blue stitch hanging from my nose. does it have I'm very stressed, can you please answer, then I see one of my noses with extra flesh in a circle 😭 is it a serious problem?

          No, these intranasal threads are absorbable and may stay for up to three months
          Do not touch them, just grease them with antibiotic ointment, they will fall off by themselves
          Inside the nose, there is no swelling of the mucous membrane and it goes away on its own

    1. Hello, don't be tired; After the rhinoplasty, all the absorbable sutures inside my nose were removed and the outer sutures were removed in the office in the same second week; I went to my doctor after a year of smelling an infection and he gave me an ointment … Now, after five years, we still see the smell of infection; There is a piece of blue absorbent thread inside the nose that does not come off and the flesh is attached to it; I went to my doctor and he said that he should have surgery again so that he can remove it. If it is absorbed inside the nose, it should be absorbed by itself. I think he did not use the proper absorbent thread. Now there is no other way but surgery? Doctor Dig E doesn't accept me? The smell of infection is very strong; I'm getting depressed, I can't stand it anymore …

      1. If there is a stitch in your nose, you should go to your doctor and take you to the operating room to open your nose and bring it to them. I became like this

    2. I also have the same problem, the tip of my nose is red, pierced, and pus is coming out. I went to my doctor, he opened the tip of my nose, he said that he would put the thread back, and he took out the thread. . It is stitched again for now . OK, I'll tell you

      1. Hello, did your nose get better? Because I had the same problem as you. Anesthesia was removed. It's been ten days now and I'm still sick. I wanted to know your experience.
