Sleeping With My Arm On My Nose After Rhino?

Hello, I am about 11 weeks post op rhino and last night my husband woke me up because he said I had my arm right over my nose while sleeping he said it looked as if I was putting pressure on my nose with my arm. I was wondering if it could have caused any damage? I didn't feel any pain or anything. Thank you so much, I would appreciate an answer.

It is extremely unlikely you diod any damage to your nose with arm pressure 11 weeks after your rhinoplasty. If you are concerned, consult with your surgeon.

Could You Have Caused Damage to Your Rhinoplasty?

At 6-8 weeks the nasal bones are healed so the relatively light pressure of your arm over your nose could not have caused any damage.

Best wishes in your recovery!
