Cast is loose?

I had an open rhinoplasty 5 days ago and because of my oily skin the bandages lost their stickiness and my cast is got a little bit loose. I can feel the heaviness of thw cast and it puts a little pressure on my nose and gives me head-aches. Would a loosen cast harm my new nose? It was shaved and i had a tip rhinoplasty too . Should i be worried. Will my nose look worse because of this loosen cast?

Usually this will not have any effect on your result, but consulting with your surgeon is always recommended.
