It's been exactly one month/4 weeks since I had my septum fixed and rhinoplasty done. I had a bump that was fixed and the tip was shortened and more upturned. Today my dog accidentally hit the area between my nostils with her nose. It wasn't hard but I still felt a little pain. It's only been an hour or so since it happened and so far I can't see any obvious changes. There is no pain now but I'm worried I messed up my results. Should I be okay?

Trauma Post Rhinoplasty
From the sounds of the events described you should be fine. A post operative check with your surgeon is always advised. I tell my patients to watch children, dogs etc as these incidents do happen. I would not be over concerned at four weeks post surgery with no bleeding etc. however do see your surgeon for a proper evaluation! Best regards, Michael V. Elam, M.D.
