There is no problem with taking Vitamin D prior to rhinoplasty or any other surgery but please avoid Vitamin E as well as other health supplements such as Arnica, fish oils , and Omega 3 products.

Vitamin D and rhinoplasty

 Vitamin D is acceptable to take before or after a rhinoplasty. Avoid aspirin, vitamin E., herbal supplements, and  and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories 2 weeks before and 2 weeks after a rhinoplasty.

Vitamin D not a problem before rhinoplasty

+1

Vitamin and herbal supplements can be risk before rhinoplasty, and most of the risk involves a rise in blood pressure and bleeding tendency. A common example is Arnica taken before surgery. Vitamin D, however, is quite safe.

Vitamin D before rhinoplasty?

I usually allow my patients to take Vitamin C and multivitamins prior to surgery.  Vitamin D should not be a problem but you shoudl ask your operating surgeon.

Vitamin D Tablets before surgery

 Dear Eliza Bethany, You should ask your surgeon their specifications on any medications either prescription or over the counter. I have my patients stop all vitamins, herbs and aspirin containing compounds prior to surgery. I provide Vitamin C that I have my patients take starting three days prior to their procedure. I do ask patients to bring any other medications they are on or want to continue taking to their preoperative appointment at this time they fill out a medication sheet that has stop and continue orders on it for each of their medications including those over the counter. Best regards, Michael V. Elam, M.D.
