I had my septo-rhinoplasty just over 2 weeks ago. I had the cast and removable stitches removed from the tip of my nose last week. I noticed another removable stitch which the nurse had missed as my nose was so crusty, so I went back to the hospital to get it removed. This time I saw a different nurse who seemed to know nothing about rhinoplasty.. She pushed on my tip so hard and ripped the stitch with tweezers. It was such a force, it bent my whole tip round.Could she have damaged my new nose?

Forceful suture removal
It is very unlikely that you had any significant injury to the nose from that experience, unpleasant as it may have been. If unsure ask to see your surgeon.
I wouldn't worry too much, but you should see your plastic surgeon
He/she can reassure you
