In brief: Also sneezing/cough

Be careful to also sneeze or cough with your mouth open after surgery as it, like blowing your nose increases the risk of bleeding.

In brief: Possible

Straining to blow the nose increases the pressure in the head and neck.
This may cause previously injured (during surgery) or otherwise fragile blood vessels to leak (bleed). Also the increase airflow through the nasal passage could cause a crust to break away (from areas that were stitched or cauterized during the rhinoplasty) and fresh bleeding to occur.

In brief: Healing

With rhinoplasty some incisions within the nose can not be closed so you must let them heal.
