Would a rhinoplasty make me more susceptible to nose bleeds? I get nosebleeds occasionally. Will having a rhinoplasty increase this occurance? Should I expect a few nosebleeds after the surgery?
Possible . Possible but rare. Expect no change in bleeding pattern.
Not in the long term. Bleeding for 1-2 days after a rhinoplasty is expected and very normal. The risk of heavy bleeding is usually reduced by stopping certain medications (aspirin, nsaids, fish oil, vit e, etc) 1-2 weeks prior to surgery. Make sure you tell your surgeon about your propensity for nosebleeds before your procedure so that he or she may look for potential risks.
