I had rhinoplasty and chin lipo three weeks ago and have been hit severely- once on the chin and today elbowed hard on my nose by my toddler patients? How can I protect myself from further injury and still keep my job?

Other then a face mask splint you have a challenge ahead of you. Your bones will be more stable in another 3 weeks so keep alert!
Blunt trauma to nose after rhinoplasty
Wearing a nasal spint would help some, but being quicker than your patients would keep you out of trouble! Good luck!
There is no question that you are at risk> I have seen this situation cause damage to the nose but, unlikely to the chin. More pressure would be needed
