In brief: Depends
If you have any broken bones or dislocation of the nasal strutter, it could be permanent.
If it is just swelling it will be mostly gone after about 48 hours. I would recommend an md take a look in the nose to make sure there is not a problem which might require intervention (septal hematoma or nasal fracture).
