Fasting Three Weeks Post Septorhinoplasty?

I was just wondering whether it is ok to fast 3 weeks after my septorhinoplasty. Ive continued eating the past three weeks and it is the last week left of ramadan and I feel as though I should and could fast. But Im just unsure if it'll have any detrimental effect on the healing process for my nose?

Fasting after rhinoplasty

In my opinion, it is not a good idea to fast after any type of major surgical procedure including a rhinoplasty for at least two months. I would not want anything that could interfere with the healing process. That being said, there probably is no research one way or the other in this area.
