Nasal Trauma 2 Months after Rhinoplasty

After two months, the risk of injury following trauma is no worse than it was prior to surgery. However, I suggest you be careful after spending all that time and money for a new nose.

Nasal injury after a rhinoplasty

+2

In a typical case there is adequate healing of nasal tissues after two months so that a mild bump on the nose will not alter the final surgical outcome. Of course a more severe trauma can damage the nose whether it was operated on or not.

At 2 monthsafter surgery a mild bump or touchingshould not hurt the nose. However, being Brazilian if you were to get a Capoera kick or blow to the nose that is a whole different matter and it may fracture it. Dr. Aldea
