I have oil skin and I will be getting a Rhin/Septo/Endoscopic Inferior turbinoplasties. I have exams 3 weeks after my operation. Do you think I should postpone my surgery date? Do you think I'll recover in time?

 Taking your examinations  3 weeks after a rhinoplasty is certainly acceptable. No need to cancel your surgery

Allow enough time for recovery

+1
Although most patients feel quite well about a week after rhinoplasty surgery, it is hard to predict the effect that your surgery will have on your ability to adequately prepare for your exams. Everyone's recovery after rhinoplasty is different. Additionally, everyone prepares differently for exams. Make sure you allow yourself enough time for recovery.
