Can periosteum damage be avoided during rhinoplasty?

I have read that one of the causes for bruising after rhinoplasty is because the covering over the bones are damaged during surgery.

Can you, as a surgeon, lift the periosteum and perform rasping and osteotomy only underneath it? How else do you not damage it?

From the patient's perspective, is there something I can do before or after surgery to help the periosteum not be too damaged or heal well without irregularities?
