I got a rhinoseptoplasty 6 days ago. I'm to return to work on Wednesday and I work in a BSL3 in a research facility where I need to wear N-95. How long should I wait before wearing one again?

Masks after rhinoplasty
Though it takes 8 weeks for the majority of the healing to occur after rhinoplasty, you'd be okay to wear an N-95 after 10 days or so. However, it does depend on exactly what was done, so I'd strongly suggest you ask your surgeon that question as well.
