6 months after Medpore in nasal tip--it is fine to scuba dive!

Assuming all nasal healing has been uneventful and your surgeon has not expressed any concerns about graft exposure, you should be able to scuba dive with out concern at all 6 months post-op.

If you have redness, irritation, crusting inside the nostrils at the tip, intermittent odor, or other concern, please ask your surgeon for a recheck before you submerge your nose in a bacteria-rich environment!
