I’ve heard that bleeding during surgery is what leads to bruising in the recovery. How do you minimize bleeding during surgery?
Bleeding and bruising can be minimized during a rhinoplasty by using good facial plastic surgery technique and dissecting in the proper areas to minimize tissue trauma. Using smaller, finer instruments also minimize bruising. But at the end of the day, each patient will bruise according to his or her genetics. Some bruise very little while others bruise more.
