A ball hit my nose 3 months post op. Have I permanently damaged my nose?

The ball accidently hit my nose quite hard. It did hurt but it did not bleed. However i felt like it is a bit swollen. My question was, have i permanently damaged my nose. And also if the shape is damaged, when will it show? Thank you

Nose injury post rhinoplasty

Your nose is probably going to be fine. It makes sense that it is swollen right now since it just came into close contact with a ball, but the swelling should resolve in time. If it does not then schedule an appointment with your surgeon to have your nose assessed in person.
