Swelling from facial plastic surgery. How long will it last?
Doctor Answers (1)
Ice can be helpful for the first 48 hours, but is not helpful thereafter. Moist heat is also unlikely to affect swelling.
You should continue to see improvement, and please check with your doctor if you do not feel that it is improving.
