The septum piercing is stitched at the lower end of the nasal septum through the local tissue of skin and cartilage.
Because this part is very uneven it´s difficult to stitch this piercing straight. The pain is at least if the canaliculus only runs through the thin membrane of the nasal septum so that no cartilage is encountered. Attention should be paid to the hygiene during a cold or the sniffles.
The healing takes 2 to 3 months.
For initial inset a ball closure ring (BCR) or circular barbell is advisable. For an eventual strain of the piercing you should take care of the permanent deformation of the cartilage.
To carry the piercing invisible there are so-called septum keeper, which is to prevents the overgrown of the canaliculus without seeing the jewellery. But also a circular barbell can be applied, which is fold upwards in the nasal cavity.
Also by the septum piercing there is the possibility of expanding.
And if the septum is expand sometimes, for example you couldt let stitch a septril piercing, whose canaliculus runs frontally through the nasal septum.
