Light bumps to the nose should not cause any damage. If you are concerned, I would recommend following up with your surgeon, as they will be able to examine you. I hope this helps, and I wish you the best of luck with the remainder of your recovery.

  I would not think that velvet shorts falling onto the bridge of your nose would cause any damage.  Followup with your plastic surgeon.  Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA

Hitting your nose following surgery can do some damage. If you had a nosebleed, heard a crack, there may be some permanent changes to you nose. If not, you probably had some swelling, but no permanent damage.
