You should definitely seek a consultation with a Facial Plastic Surgeon or ENT. You will need to have this issue evaluated. A septal perforation (hole) can be repaired with tissue from inside the nose, in most cases, or with a septal button that can be placed to plug the hole. I hope this information is helpful.
