Avoid wearing glasses after Rhinoplasty

I ask all my Rhinoplasty patients to avoid wearing glasses for 6 months after their Rhinoplasty.  Avoid further use and consult with your Rhinoplasty surgeon for further advice.

It is unlikely that you could have damaged your nose by the activities you mentioned but each situation is unique and only your rhinoplasty surgeon knows the specific details of your procedure and should be the person commenting on post-operative questions such as this

None of the things you mention sound like you damaged your nose, You will experience changes to the shape of the nose as the swelling goes down, but these are independent of what you are describing.
