There is no need to review my edit because I overlooked a fault; now I want to revert it.

There is a "rollback" option in the revision history to handle this:
However, it is only avalabie to users with full editing privileges (2k rep).
For users who can only suggest edits, the only option you have is to suggest another edit fixing your mistake (a good revision comment here is also likely important).
If you have suggested an edit and you want to "retract" the suggestion, before it has even been evaluated, then there simply is no such feature. If it's really inappropriate hopefully it will be rejected. If it's not, again, you can simply suggest the fix, or post a comment so that someone else can fix it.
If you have full editing privileges, and:
If you are still in the grace period, you can simply edit it back to its original form and the revision will completely disappear as if it never happened.
If you are past the grace period, you can roll the edit back by clicking the "rollback" link on that revision in the post's revision history.
If you don't have full editing privileges you have to manually revert the post to its original form as a new suggested edit, which will have to go through the review process again to be approved.
