I had a rhinoplasty for weeks ago, and this morning my dog bumped it and now theres a small red mark where he bumped it. Will that cause my nose to realign or be damaged permanently?

Injury to nose after rhinoplasty
Injuring your nose 4 weeks after rhinoplasty surgery may not necessarily result in the need for revision. Usually the nasal bones are healing well at this point, and a significant impact would be needed to displace them. Any concerns are best addressed by evaluation by your surgeon.

Unless your dog weighs as much as you do, it is unlikely he did any damage that wil cause a permanent change in the appearance of your nose. The red mark is probably secondary to skin irritation or bruising. However, I suggest you call your surgeon.
