Pulled out a stitch after rhinoplasty

I had rhinoplasty approx. 12 days ago. I was cleaning in my nose when I saw a large piece of mucous. I decided to use my tweezers to just grasp and pull it out. Unknowingly I pulled out a stitch, it had a knot at the end and two strings stemming from the knot.

It was not near the columella but higher on the outer right side. I'm very scared I may have adversely affected my new nose and to make matters worse my nose was already asymmetrical from swelling (or so I hope). Please help!
