Is there anything that can be done before and after rhinoplasty surgery to minimize bruising?
You will be given numerous instructions before and after your rhinoplasty surgery to help minimize bruising. Ceasing the use of non-steroidal anti inflammatory medications (like motrin or advil), aspirin, and natural remedies will prevent excessive bleeding which will lead to bruising. Our office prescribes both a topical and oral form of Arnica to help with bruising, and ice to the face will help prevent bruising following rhinoplasty.
