Rhinoplasty and recent trauma

Usually mild trauma after rhinoplasty does not cause problems, meaning a slight bump into something. However, if you took a "good shot" to the nose, then it would be wise to see your surgeon.

Hit to the nose after 2.5 months

A light hit to the nose after 2.5 months should not compromise your result, but I would recommend following up with your surgeon so he or she can examine your nose and ensure you are healing properly. I hope this helps, and I wish you the best of luck.

Blunt trauma to nose after surgery

At 2.5 months things are unlikely to shift after a mild blow, but if your nose looks different or is severely swollen, call your surgeon for follow up to check.
