If its was a scorpion, a bee, a wasp  or a brown recluse spider maybe  they coud do damage but a mosquito never.

I do not believe that breathing a mosquito in through your nose will effect the results of your Rhinoplasty. After all, the insect will lodge in your nose.

Thank you for your inquiry.

Good luck with your results.
