Correction of the nose bleeds is possible after rhinoplasty.

Correction of the nose bleeds is possible after rhinoplasty (Dr Young from Bellevue near Seattle). Based on what you said, the ENT doctor might have diagnosed what is called Ozena which is when the nostril passages are so open, the mucosa dries out which can lead to crust formation, bacterial overgrowth and bleeding.  You would need a thorough exam to evaluate why you are bleeding.  You could have prominent vessels that is causing the bleeding that could be taken care of.  If it is ozena, you can reconstruct your nose to prevent this drying through controlled narrowing of the nose, mucosal grafts, flaps into the nasal cavity, etc.  Exposure of cartilage, grafts, stithces, or implants could all be possibilities that could be the cause.  Get multiple opinions, is my best suggestion also.

Thanks for reading, Dr Young
