Trauma To Nose After Rhinoplasty
If you receive some sort of trauma to the nose after a recent rhinoplasty, it is always a good idea to have it checked out by your surgeon. However, if the pain is gone, there is no swelling or visual change in the nose, then I doubt that accidental contact caused any structural changes. I hope this helps.

I highly recommend you see your surgeon if you are concerned. He will examine you and make sure to give you the best advice possible. Best wishes, Dr. H

I think you should be okay
If you haven't noticed any change in the way your nose looks after the injury, it is unlikely that the ball has caused any problems. My best advise would be to watch it closely, but only for the next few weeks. Trauma, like you have experienced should cause an immediate change and if you don't see a difference now, it should suddenly cause a difference as time goes on. Why not call your surgeon and have them take a good look at your nose with you.

If you are in pain and there is additional swelling, the only way to be sure is to contact your surgeon and schedule an evaluation. best of luck!
