Hit on the nose after a rhinoplasty

From your description it is unlikely that you have caused any permanent damage to your nose.  If you have any questions it is time to be seen by your plastic surgeon.

Rhinoplasty healing

Dear coolcat567,

  1. It would be best to visit your surgeon ASAP for a quick checkup
  2. If it did not bleed, that is a good sign, but to be sure, you should be examined
  3. If we can catch something early on, then there might be a quick fix

Best regards,

Hit on the nose after rhinoplasty

Hello, and sorry to hear about the issue you experienced. It is not likely any major issues were caused. I would recommend following up with your surgeon, as they will be able to examine your nose in person and ensure you are healing properly. I hope this helps, and I wish you the best of luck.

Trauma to the nose after rhinoplasty would have to be significant to damage the outcome.

It's very unlikely the trauma you sustained will have any long-term effects on the rhinoplasty. Nevertheless, you should check in with your plastic surgeon.
