Fish oil after rhinoplasty?

It is ok to take fish oil 2 months after a rhinoplasty. This will have no effect on your result at this stage of your healing. In general, you want to avoid the following 2 weeks before and 2 weeks after your surgery:

1) NSAIDS
2) Fish oil
3) Vitamin E
4) Herbal supplements

The above can cause bleeding during and after surgery, and are best avoided closer to the operation. I hope this helps, and best of luck to you.

    The bleeding risk that is observed is most pronounced for the one month window around the time of rhinoplasty.                                                                                                                         Kenneth Hughes, MD                                                                                                           Los Angeles, CA

You may resume all supplements one week after a rhinoplasty. There is no problems with taking fish oil supplements now.

It should cause no problem to resume your fish oil 2 months after Rhinoplasty. I usually have my patients stop all their vitamins and herbal supplements 2 weeks before and two weeks after a procedure. Hope this helps.
