I used to have it pierced before surgery but took it out and allowed the hole to close. Now, it's been almost a year since I had it done and was thinking about having it re pierced. Is there any thing that could mess up my results? Or is it safe?
Are There Any Risks to Get a Septum Piercing 1 Year After Rhinoplasty?

Septal piercing not a good idea
Septal piercing is probably not a good idea. It could lead to infection an/or a permanent septal perforation that can be difficult to impossible to correct.

Septal piercing post Rhinoplasty
I would suggest speaking with your treating surgeon as he/she will know what procedures you had done during the rhinoplasty surgery. i.e. was septal work done etc?? There are possible complications which may occur from septal piercing with difficulty in healing and risk of infection. Best regards, Michael V. Elam, M.D.
