Trauma to nose
Thank you for your question.It is important for you to consult with your surgeon about any questions or concerns you may have, seeing as they know your medical history, anatomy and surgery best. It is hard to tell if you did any damage without a nasal examination. There is a possibly, as any trauma to the nose can cause damage even if you don’t notice it from the outside. Best to go get it checked out by your surgeon.
Best of luck!

In all likelihood, you did not cause any damage to your nose, as you are pretty far out from your surgery. Still, if you are concerned, I recommend contacting your surgeon for an evaluation.

Anything is possible but unlikely. However, you should see your surgeon or a different rhinoplasty specialist if your surgeon is unavailable to be examined. If your nose does not look different when looking in the mirror and your nasal breathing did not worsen, chances are no harm was done. Good luck!
