Blowing your nose at 6 weeks should not affect final result
Thank you for the question. I doubt that you can do any permanent damage by blowing your nose at 6 weeks following your rhinoplasty. This is especially the case if no bleeding, pain, or shape change has occurred.
All the best,

Nose blowing 6 weeks after rhinoplasty should have no effect.
Check with your surgeon first, but I see no reason why you would not be able to blow your nose 6 weeks after a rhinoplasty.
Safely blowing your nose after rhinoplasty.
It takes 6 weeks for the bones of the nose to heal after rhinoplasty. The initial healing of the soft-tissues are also complete by 6 weeks, although varying degrees of swelling will last longer. Ideally, you would avoid blowing your nose until you are past the 6 week mark, as is the case with you.
