Nose piercing after surgery

#1 Postby jackie0789 » Sun Jul 09, 2017 6:50 pm

Hello! I am going for Lefort I and BSSO this Tuesday July 11th (feeling pretty terrified right about now but trying to keep positive that everything will go ok!) anyways I have my nose pierced and I know I will have to take it out for the surgery but has anyone been able to put theirs back in after the surgery? I am really hoping it won't close up.

This is a significant surgery. Putting your nose ring in will be the least of your concerns.
Upper ceramics 5/21/14, Lower stainless 5/28/14
Double jaw surgery was 6/18/15. Estimated time Jan 2016; still on at my 2 year anniversary...

I'm emphatically against extraction orthodontics! It's easier for the orthodontist; not better for the patient!!!

Well I'm recovering now and I got it back in ok :).
