Cinch Technique For Nose Flaring

I wanted VERY minimal work done to my nose. I love my nose but when I smile it flares quite a bit. He did not want to do the Weir technique because he said it's irreversible. My doctor preformed closed rhinoplasty on me and did the cinch technique where he sewed my nose closer together with a permanent suture by making a small incision near the nostrils. I've noticed my nostrils look a bit smaller and my nose turns up a bit, giving me a pig like appearance. My nose, especially the alar looks bigger, it doesn't look smaller like I hoped for.

Is this a result of swelling and will my nose drop down? If not, could I have the suture removed and will my nose go back to normal? Thank you
