Thank you for the question, most patients will be able to tell if something bad happened to the nose after an injury. If it looks and feels normal, then most likely nothing happened. I would, however, still advise you to follow up with your plastic surgeon.

While your nose remains vulnerable to trauma as you heal, there is no indication that the hit created extensive damage. Request your surgeon to examine you to ensure that no damage was sustained, and scold your husband to be more careful in the future.
