Rhinoplasty, otherwise known as a nose job, typically results in bruising and swelling. This is a normal part of the surgery and recovery.
The skill of your surgeon can dictate your level of bruising. Bruising can result from the surgical cuts in your nasal bones. The better the cuts, the lesser your chance of bruising from rhinoplasty.
Your chances of bruising can also be increased by:
- Medications (Certain medications and drugs can boost your chances of bruising.)
- Bleeding disorders
- Herbal supplements and high levels of certain vitamins
If you are planning a rhinoplasty procedure and wish to avoid bruising, or are concerned with how long you may have to be off of work, your surgeon can answer all of your questions at your cosmetic consultation. Please contact Advanced Cosmetic Surgery Center in Denver for more information.
