Rhinoplasty and light trauma
Unless you struck your nose pretty hard, it is unlikely that you caused a problem. If concerned, then you should see your doctor.
Thanks for posting your concern. After rhinoplasty, the nose is sensitive. The events you described should not cause change 4 weeks out from surgery. If you do not see any bruising, no change in your nose externally, and no change in your breathing - it is unlikely you did any permanent damage or caused a change. If you do see a change or are unsure with the way you are healing, you should speak with your surgeon.
Pain with washing face after rhinoplasty
It is unlikely that you caused any permanent change to your nose if there was not additional swelling however, it is best to address this with your surgeon.
Contact your surgeon for an in person exam. It is impossible to determine if you have damaged your nose without seeing it.
It's hard to answer your question without an exam. You would likely do well to check in with your surgeon for an evaluation and exam. Good luck in your recovery!
