After several days in which she had to wear a bandage in the area where she underwent the nose surgery, Simona posted the first pics without the bandage on social media. "Sunny day - happy day," Halep captioned the photos.
Halep on her nose surgery
Halep decided to undergo a surgical procedure to address her difficulties with breathing.
Also, Halep had a plastic procedure on her nose. Having problems with the breathing for many years already and becoming worse with the time, I decided to follow the advice of my doctors and do the needed surgery. I couldn’t do it earlier because I never found the necessary three months for recovery.
I did also the esthetic past, that I wanted to do for a long time as I did not like my nose at all. I know many of you can understand me,” Halep added. Speaking on her next plans, Halep said she will take some time to rest and heal before returning to action.
“For the moment I am not thinking anything but recovery. What is sure, is that this year I won’t be able to compete in any official tournament anymore. My 2022 season is over. 2022, you have been an interesting year full of everything!
See you on court, 2023! I feel I still have a lot to do on a tennis court and still have some goals,” Halep concluded.
