Nasal Trauma 6 Weeks after Rhinoplasty
From your description, it is unlikely you did any harm to your nose. If there is any doubt, I suggest you see your surgeon for an evaluation.
Concerns about damage to nose from an accidental hit 6 weeks post rhinoplasty
By six weeks following a rhinoplasty, the bones should be well healed. The way you described the injury, it did no appear to be very strong/forceful and it is not highly likely that any significant permanent damage was done. For peace of mind, you may want to consider contacting your operating surgeon and having him/her take a look.
