Air from hairdryer not sufficient to cause damage.
Expelled air from a hair dryer is of such minor force that damage to a surgeon's work is unlikely at any stage post rhinoplasty surgery. Furthermore, at 3 weeks post septorhinoplasty, the dissected skeletal framework has already started to mend where damage to your nose would most certainly would be accompanied with significant pain and swelling.
