Rhinoplasty Recovery Guide 👃 - 24 - Bloody Nasal Discharge After Rhinoplasty

Nose Bleed After Rhinoplasty

Bloody nasal discharge is to be expected for 3-5 days after any nasal surgery

After all nasal operations, it is normal to have nasal bleedng in the form of a drip or leak from the front and back of the nose, which lasts 3-5 days. The risk of nosebleeds is highest especially in the first 10 days after surgery. It is inconvenient for all the sporting activities (bending down, fast running ...)  which may cause sudden increases in blood pressure in the head area and the hot environment.

Why nose bleeding is seen after the rhinoplasty operation?

After the rhinoplasty operation, there may be bleeding from the application areas of the dot-shaped radiofrequency device on the turbinates due to the radiofrequency turbinate reduction process, which can be dripped from the mucosal incision areas. While bleeding is less after simple rhinoplasty operations; septoplasty operation and radiofrequency turbinate reduction can be more than the amount and duration of the expected nose bleeding after aesthetic nose operations.

The information in this guide was prepared by Dr.Murat Enöz for patients who underwent rhinoplasty. 
You can find different opinions and suggestions from other clinics and doctors. Please take into consideration 
the recommendations of the doctors who performed your aesthetic nose surgery. Sometimes drug names given here 
only in Turkey may also belong to the drugs found. Plenty of luck :)
