It is unlikely that a sock caused a problem with your nose,. If at all concerned, then see your surgeon.
Rhinoplasty after care
Hi. From what you have described, it is unlikely that you have damaged anything. I would, however, recommend that you followup with your plastic surgeon so that they may evaluate you and can give you better advise based on an in-person evaluation. Good luck and take care, Dr. Howell
Thank you for your question.
It is unlikely that any of these instances caused any damage to your nose but the best thing you can do is have your surgeon examine the area to make sure everything is healing nicely. Best of luck.

Trauma after rhinoplasty
It is highly unlikely that there was any damage done. That being said, as things feel differently, it is best to contact your surgeon as they know what maneuvers were performed during the surgery and if anything could have happened secondary to the trauma that may cause you to feel things differently. It's always better to be safe than sorry, specially so soon after surgery! Best of luck.
