Hi, I had a septorhinoplasty about 2 and half weeks ago. The healing was going great. Last night, however, I laughed and smiled for a few minutes after my shower, and felt some pressure at the base (and a bit all over) of my nose. Then I spent a while checking from all angles if things had changed. I didn't contort at all, just looked. It seems my bridge is wider and my tip less prominent. Are the day-to-day/hour-to-hour fluctuations just messing with me, or could I have done something?
Can Laughing and Smiling 2 Weeks After Rhinoplasty Effect the Final Results?

It will not effect final result
Smiling and laughing is a good thing! don't be worries about changing the final result, you may have just stretched the area which is why you felt some pressure.

Smiling or laughing after rhinoplasty
Smiling or laughing two weeks after rhinoplasty should not be a problem other than causing some discomfort from the stretching effect.
Can smiling and laughing 2 weeks after Rhinoplasty effect results?
Smiling and laughing 2 weeks after a Rhinoplasty should not have any impact on the final result. Anything that drmatically increases the blood flow to the face and nose however, should be avoided for the first month after a Rhinoplasty IMHO.

You should smile two weeks after your rhinoplasty
Smiling and laughing two to three weeks after your rhinoplasty certainly will not affect your results. Your nose will soften and improve slowly over the next several months, though now you should enjoy yourself and stop looking so closely.
Best of luck,
