I had a rhinoplasty 6 days ago and removed the splint yesterday.. Today I hit my nose with my hand, I didn't hit it really hard but I'm freaking out that it moved to a side and that it will stay that way forever... Is that possible?? Please help.. Also, After I shower it sort of looks swollen? Is that possible? Thank you.
Hit Nose After Rhinoplasty?

Six days after a rhinoplasty the nose is fairly stable.
It's possible you have done some damage to your nose six days after rhinoplasty but it takes a pretty good amount of trauma to do this. You should go see your surgeon.
