Hollow face after rhinoplasty

I wonder if you can help me, as no one else has an answer and i can't find any help on the internt... I had septorhinoplasty a year ago to remove a hump. Although i was happy with the result i noticed a couple of months later that my face looked empty and cheeks were very hollow as if all the plumpness was sucked out.
I did some research on the net and found that this had happened to many other people but doctors and surgeons deny it has anything to do with the operation, and say that i may have lost wieght, however i have actually put on a couple of pounds since the op.... when i searched further i came to find that this posssible due to the nerves and bloodvessels being damaged during the rhinoplasty poroceedure,
My question is that can this be fixed with some kind of facial physio or is this a permanent affect, it has made me look 20 years older and it's like suddenly all of my facial fat has been sucked out! I know this is a result of the surgery but how do i fix it? if a nerve is cut or damage is it repairable? can the blood vessels be bought back to life?
