Permanent damage after pinching the tip of the nose after rhinoplasty?

Thank you for your question.
Five months after surgery, the underlying tip cartilage should be healed and sutures dissolved. It is unlikely permanent damage has been done. Good luck and I hope this heals well.
Nasal tip swelling after rhinoplasty and pinching
It is unlikely that she disrupted structural support maneuvers done during surgery; more likely she has caused swelling from local mechanical irritation; I would start by stopping the pinching of your nose and allow swelling to resolve over one month; then you can reassess your results.
