The sutures could be removed, but it would be difficult to determine if this would produce the result you would like without knowing what was done.

Find a plastic surgeon with ELITE credentials who performs hundreds of rhinoplasties and rhinoplasty revisions each year. Then look at the plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can deliver the results.

Nasal revision

You can reverse the procedure but other maneuvers besides suture fixation may have been used with the original surgery. Discuss with the surgeon that did the surgery to find out how your nose was treated surgically before you make a final decision. Some things are more easy to reverse that others. Good luck. Donald R.

Nose tip projection: can it be changed

Nose tip projection can always be changed. The shape of the tip is based on many factors including the structure or cartilage and the skin cover. Before deprojection the tip, it will be important to know what structure is causing the tip to be over projected.
