I'm 3 days post-op and find it very difficult to sleep on my back. I have accidentally slept on my side a couple of times and now I worry that I have damaged the result?
Will Sleeping On My Side After Rhinoplasty Affect The Result?

Sleeping After Rhinoplasty
In general, I encourage people to sleep with their head elevated for the first 7-10 days after having a rhinoplasty. If you accidentally sleep on your side then it really does not matter.
