Rhinoplasty and bending?

I had my rhinoplasty today. And I incidentally let my head down once today after surgery. I feel heavy in my nose since. I have nasal packing and I am breathing only through my mouth. Will it affect results?

Hello,I think you should be fine but I would recommend following up with your surgeon as your nose heals to ensure the best outcome.

Recommend Following up with your surgeon

It is understandable to be anxious after a surgery, especially on the first day.  In general, I expect a cast to be on your nose and secured so that minor bumps should not be a problem - yet still avoided if possible.  I recommend you contacting your trusted surgeon.  He/she should be able to answer your question with more authority.
