Bumped nose after rhinoplasty

At this early stage after surgery it is easy to cause injury or move nasal structures. However, if there is no obvious deformity following the injury, its probably best to wait and observe to see how the shape of your nose settles over the next 6-12 months and address you nasal shape as required at that stage. I suggest you see your surgeon for review as to whether your nose has been damaged
