I had rhinoplasty four days ago. There's blood on tape on collumela, and one nostril has a lot of dried blood on. I'm not bleeding anymore, but the hard dried blood is present inside and around my nose (although I clean it when it is too outside). Will this dried blood on stitches and collumela result in bad results ?

Dried Blood Around Nose After Rhinoplasty
It is normal to have dried blood in these areas and this should not affect your results. I suggest to continue keeping the outside areas clean. I do tell my patients they can use some hydrogen peroxide on a Q tip to help as well as keeping the incisions moist with ointment.
