Cinch suture removal
6 months ago
After getting double jaw surgery 1 year ago, my nose widened so I get cinch suture in pin removal surgery. But I feel it wasn't effective and my nose tip seem even more stumpy and thicker than before. If i remove this cinch suture can I go back to the nose before having cinch suture? And also does removing cinch suture involve swelling?

It may not go back since there was likely also actual tissue removal. It MAY widen a bit though depending on technical details from the first surgery. Yes, there would be swelling.
