I'm 6 weeks and 6 days post-op my rhinoplasty, was yawing (it was quite a big yawn) i heard a very little tick-like sound, is that weird or am i pretty much paranoid? (i'm just happy with my result, i don't want anything to change for the worse)

Breaking stitches after a yawn?
While I cannot comment on the intensity of your yawns, I will say in my professional experience I have not seen this occur in my patients.
Being a little paranoid can be a good thing, it reminds you that you're still healing and will keep you from doing things that can potentially cause injury.
Stitch Breaking 6 Weeks after Rhinoplasty
It is very unlikely for a yawn to break a stitch. You can mention this to your surgeon at your next visit.
Rhinoplasty and yawning
At 6 weeks a yawn should not impact your results. If you are really concerned, then you should speak with your surgeon.
