Start by taking fluids slowly and switch to a light diet for digestive tolerance. You can start with a regular diet the next day. You will likely have a bloody runny nose two or four days after the rhinoplasty procedure.

Change the tulle pad under your nose as needed. Do not rub your nose, this condition is prone to irritation. It is normal to have a small amount of blood in the back of your throat.
