Positive Indicators, But See Your Doctor
Even the most fastidious plastic surgery patients can't control what happens when they're asleep, so please don't feel bad. Events like yours are not uncommon. The fact that you only bled for a very short amount of time is promising, but it's difficult to say without examining your nose. You'll need to see your plastic surgeon to determine whether there was any significant damage.
