Glasses for 20 mins left tiny indent on my nose 2.5 weeks after rhinoplasty. Is this permanent?

I wore glasses today for about 20 minutes and didn't know I wasn't supposed to. It left a tiny indent. Is this permanent? So nervous that I ruined my nose and have to get a revision.

It would be unlikely for glasses to cause permanent damage. This is usually due to swelling around that point of pressure. Monitor your nose shape and return to your surgeon for an exam if concerned.
