Summary

Traditional sutures used to close the skin after a rhinoplasty are permanent sutures that require removal. These sutures create less inflammation and are thought to produce less visible scars but the process of removing the sutures can be painful and inconvenient for the patient. Some surgeons use fast absorbing sutures that do not require removal, but there have not been strong studies comparing the final scar appearance with these different suture types. This study will evaluate the rhinoplasty scar appearance using traditional permanent sutures compared to fast absorbing sutures.
