Turbinate surgery combined with Rhinoplasty increases the likelihood of postoperative hemorrhage.

if this is your first surgical procedure, including dental extraction, and if you had significant hemorrhage after nasal surgery, you may consider consultation with a hematologist to exclude a preexisting bleeding diathesis. Hope this helps. Dr Joseph.

Bleeding After Nose Surgery

It is extremely likely that you have some type blood clotting disorder and you should have a hematology consultation. However, that usually takes time to get the results. Meanwhile your surgeon or your hematologist can prescribe DDAVP,  Trnaexamic Acid or both to normalize your coagulation.

Good Luck
