Did I do any damage? I had a closed rhinoplasty & a septoplasty.

I did something I know I shouldn't have done, I had a huge thing of green crust covering the upper nostril and couldn't breath much, so I took tweezers and pulled it out. A huge very long stitch came out with it and it felt like it came from really far up my nose, felt very strange. Did I hurt anything?

Suture removal

You did not say when you had your surgery.  Often internal nasal sutures are placed to close the incisions and these are absorbable. After about a week, they can come out.
