Hit nose 4 weeks after rhinoplasty
If there is any swelling on your nose after hitting it 4 weeks after your rhinoplasty, you could try using ice packs on it on and off to decrease the swelling. If you feel the appearance of your nose has changed after the injury, I would recommend being evaluated by your surgeon.
