Sniffing Hard After Rhinoplasty, Sometimes So Hard It Sounds Like a Snort, Will This Have Long Term Effect?

I am very concerned as I have been sniffing tremendously and forcefully after my rhinoplasty/septoplasty and nasal graft surgery to correct a breathing issue I was having. I snort when I sniff in too hard and it's almost become a nervous habit. Will any of these actions affect my long term result of the surgery and my ultimate goal to breath better?

It is unlikely that any form of sniffling after a rhinoplasty would have any long term effect.  It will get better over time.
