Bump on the Septum, How Long Should I Wait To Fix It?

i've asked a question before about the bump, and my surgeon concerned to have the second surgery after 3 months of having the first one, is it okay after 3 months to have it one more time or should wait up to 6 months?

Bump on septum

Perhaps you mean a bump on the dorsum, as the septum is not visible. All of us have our preferrences and with any revision it seems time is on our side. The further along the healing, the easier it can be to manage a revision. If you trust your surgeon you can follow his lead.
