Rhinoplasty

Thank you for your question. Your experiences may be due to your flight. During a flight, there are marked changes in the air pressure of the airplane and this change in pressure can cause a nosebleed and also affect the face mask that is used to regulate the pressure. Please keep in mind that it is normal to have some congestion and swelling after surgery.

Best wishes,
