I Did a Rhinoplasty and I Slept on my Side on the Second Night After the Operation, Will This Affect the Shape of my Nose?

Four days ago, I had a rhinoplasty and they told me to sleep on my back. I'm not used to sleep like that position at all, I parley could stand being on my back the first night ... But in the second night I couldn't take it anymore so I slept on my right side, will this affect the results for sure?

Sleeping on side


It is unlikely that you put enough pressure on the nose to cause harm - it would hurt too much to do that
