Hi I'm 19 from Sydney and just had rhinoplasty 5 days ago. Today I went to pick a crust that irated me and I accident pulled on a stitch but didn't come out, I hope this has runined my results and I slightly move the nostrils when cleaning with q-tip is that also going to affect the out come? If stitching needs to be done again can it be done in his office?

Pulling On A Stick Accidentally After Rhinoplasty
Pulling on a stitch at 5 days post-surgery may or may not have caused a given damage to the results of your rhinoplasty.
Without knowing the full details of what happened and then examining you thoroughly, it is not possible to provide you with a definitive diagnosis.
Therefore, I encourage you to have your surgeon take a look at the current status of your nose and the area you have targeted. After all, he knows the full details of your surgery.
I wish you the best and hopefully your issue will have no effect over your final results whatsoever.
Thank you for sharing your concerns and the best of luck to you.
The suture that was removed could be an important part of the rhinoplasty. So, it's best to call your surgeon right now and tell him what happened.
