It's been seven months since i had rihnoplasty done, I got a lot of work done to my nose. I experience dry skin and bleeding once in a while, it's not all the time, maybe about once or twice a month and the blood isn't a lot. Is this normal? if so, why does this happen?

Bleeding Seven Months after Rhinoplasty
Have your plastic surgeon examine the inside of your nose. There is likely nothing wrong, and he or she will recommend saline for irrigation.

Dry skin after rhinoplasty
Thanks for the question.
- It is not uncommon for the nasal skin to be sensitive after rhinoplasty . There may be some benefit to discussing this with your surgeon and consider a discussion with an aesthetician.
- As for the small amounts of nose bleeding, it's a good idea to have your surgeon look into your nose.
- Your septal surgery may have some areas that have crusts or sutures that are absorbing.
- Nose bleeds can sometimes be worse when the nose dries out, so consider saline sprays and humidification.
