You do not mention when you had the rhinoplasty. Some minimal pain after surgery may temporarily occur, but discus this with your surgeon.

Sometimes after nasal surgery, there may be discomfort and this can vary. To understand your  "nipping pain" better, more details and an exam would be necessary.  Probably best to discuss with your doctor.
