Worry about damaging septorhinoplasty result?

Hi. I am just over a year post-septorhinoplasty. I still worry about causing harm to the result. A few times I've woken up face down with my head buried into the pillow - will that damage the result? Also pinching and blowing my nose - is that OK at this stage? Thank you.

Whatever force or trauma it would take to hurt your nose prior to surgery, would be the same force or trauma to hurt your nose one year after surgery. Consult and trust your surgeon.
