I had to remove my nasal piercing prior to rhinoplasty, and now that I am about a month post surgery. I started to notice that my piercing whole is closing, thus I tried with some moderate force to put it back in today. While doing it, the jewelry did not go in all the way but got inserted a bit in causing me some light bleeding from the old piercing whole.....!!!??? It looks redish now and a bit swollen... Is that issue would delay my healing process or worsen my future appeareance?!? Thank you
Did I Damage Results By Forcing Nasal Piercing After Rhinoplasty?

Nasal piercing would not damage results of a rhinoplasty.
It is very unlikely that one could damage the results of a rhinoplasty by piercing. The damage created by trying to force the jewelry through a contracting hole is probably temporary. I would recommend that you let your surgeon take a look at it.

Have your surgeon evaluate your nose to see if you did any damage or if you have an infection. Donald R. Nunn MD Atlanta Plastic Surgeon.
