How Do I Minimize Bruising From A Rhinoplasty?

I am considering a nose job but worry about bruising afterwards. Tips for reducing bruises are really helpful.

Dr. Azizzadeh’s Expert Answer

We put our patients on arnica or bromelain. We also recommend that patients stop taking all vitamins and herbal supplements, as well as NSAIDs. Additionally, we tell our patients not to have fish for 2 weeks prior to surgery. All of these simple changes will help minimize bruising after a rhinoplasty.
