How bad does it hurt to get the stitches removed from a septo-rhinoplasty? Is it really bad? Should i take pain medicine before i go to get it done?

There will be some weird pulling/tugging sensations and some suctioning of mucous, allowing you to breathe better after all is removed. Think of how good you will feel once it is done and you will make it through! ...Read more
