After a rhinoplasty, there is a lot of swelling in the nasal area. The swelling, combined with the presence of your cast may make a yawn or smile feel more noticeable than usual but will not necessarily ruin anything. Hope this helps.

no yawning or smiling won't ruin it. sleep with your head elevated though.
