How to minimize swelling and bruising after a rhinoplasty?
An experienced rhinoplasty surgeon can help minimize the amount of bruising after a Rhinoplasty procedure by placing careful cuts in the bones of the nose with osteotomies in a minimally traumatic fashion. Most patients get some degree of visible bruising and swelling after the nasal procedure for at least 10 days to 14 days afterwards. Steroid pills can also help with the swelling but are not given on a routine basis. Steroid shots are given to the tip of the nose starting at one month after the procedure when there is edema located in the supratip area of the nose.
