Is there anything that can be done before and after rhinoplasty surgery to minimize bruising?Answer:
There are very few scientific papers on the use of herbal preparations to decrease swelling. Some of our patients like to use Arnica Montana and Bromaline. There is Bromaline in pineapple juice. Also, you should avoid ibuprofen, aspirin, ginko biloba, garlic, St John’s wart starting about 10 days before surgery. Ice is your friend after surgery for about 3 days.
