    If you had a nasal aesthetic / rhinoplasty surgery, it would take a longer time, such as 1 year, for the tissues to heal. However, the healing of tissues after septoplasty is close to completion in 7 months. Therefore, I do not recommend that you wait, a new examination will be useful. Get well soon.
