Rhinoplasty Recovery: How to Minimise Bruising

I was fortunate in that I didn't experience any bruising after my Rhinoplasty, and only mild discomfort. This may, in large part, be due to the skills of the surgeon, but I also did some preparation beforehand. 
I read a few articles on minimising bruising and the common themes were to take Vitamin C, Zinc and 
Arnica Montana, as well as staying in general good health. 

I started taking Effervescent Vitamin C and Zinc tablets from Tesco everyday for two weeks before surgery and for ten days afterwards. I also took Arnica tablets(6c) from Holland & Barrett two days before surgery and for five days after.

This seemed to work for me, but everyone's different. Have a chat with your doctor or pharmacist before taking any of these supplements.

  1. Rhinoplasty is indeed a delicate procedure and takes patience and of course extra care. I think we have the same blog niche so I am just dropping by as I try to get more info about getting a nose job for myself.

    But now, will blog more about it until I learn things before I undergo an operation.

  2. I was told by a doctor to take a little ibuprofen the night before mine, and that seemed to work fairly well for me. However, I do like the idea of using Vitamins and supplementing good nutrition with the supplements you mentioned. Never hurts to have a little extra zinc!
