Nasal piercing

I would never recommend a nasal piercing due to possibility of cartilage infection;  whether you had a rhinoplasty or not.  Donald R. Nunn MD  Atlanta Plastic Surgeon.

Two years should be enough time.  If healing is complete, the piercing could be contemplated.  I would ask your surgeon.
