If the impact didn't cause bleeding or swelling, I suspect the tip is fine and did not change form. I’m sure it feels different as it is still sensitive and numb. However, if it does not look different, don’t worry. If you are still very concerned, make an appointment with your surgeon so he/she may examine it. Good luck!

At nine weeks post op you most likely just hurt your nose and did not do any structural damage to your rhinoplasty.  Make an appointment with your plastic surgeon for an evaluation.  Your surgeon is in the best position to know if it is a problem or not.

   Being hit in this manner on the tip may have caused suture, strut, or graft compromise, but you should be examined by your plastic surgeon
