When to Get Stitches From Nose Tip After The Open Technique Rhinoplasty Operation?

When columella stitches are removed after open technique nose job?

Will permanent sutures in my nose tip get infected?,When stitches are taken out from columella after rhinoplasty?,When stitches are removed from columella after open technique rhinoplasty?,

Open technique nose surgery operations, the 5-point W Incisions or Inverted-V Incision is made on columella. This incision area can be sutured with different aesthetic suture materials when the operation is terminated.

Absorbable stitches at the columella dissolve so they do not need to be removed!

I would like to share some important information about this issue. After practicing almost all open technique rhinoplasty operations, I prefer to sew the stitches of my collar with "Dissolvable stitches" that can dissolve in the body and reduce the possibility of scar by applying less stretching force. When permanent stitche materials were used, the scar in the nose-type stitche could have a "scallop" scar. Dissolvable stitches on the nose tip usually disappears 1-3 weeks. I recommend that antibiotic skin ointment be applied to the suture area to improve the wound healing rate and reduce the risk of infection in the suture area. Dissolvable stitching materials can become less loose within a few days, and may leave fewer marks in areas where stitches are thrown.

Permanent stitches at the columella can be taken out after 1 to 3 weeks

Permanent (non-absorbable) suture materials (you can see generally their color as blue) are usually removed after 1 to 3 weeks . If I do not bother my patients, I prefer to take it in 3 weeks.
