Our expert says:
Packing is used for a few reasons after nasal surgery:
1. Stabilising the nasal septum post operatively.
2. Control of bleeding.
3. Preverence of Surgeon.
Every case is different, so it is difficult to predict who would, or would not need packing. I do not prefer packing, but it is indeed required in some cases. It sounds as if you would benefit, as you are having a septoplasty as well as rhinoplasty. The latest packs are very easy to remove, and cause very little trauma.
