Is it normal to have a runny nose after a rhinoplasty?

I’ve performed Rhinoplasty for over 20 years and runny noses are not uncommon after Rhinoplasty for a few months.

He takes cartilage, often from the septum of the nose, but also sometimes from the ear or rib – and he uses this cartilage to reinforce the areas in your nose that he anticipates could weaken over time.
