I had a blepharoplasty done about 2 years ago to reduce the saggy skin from under my eyes which I felt made me look much older than I felt. The procedure was done under local anaesthesia, which turned out to be very painful.
Although I had the standard post-op visits and applied the cold compresses etc., my face became quite swollen about a couple of weeks after surgery, and the swelling persisted for some months.

The swelling is larger under the left eye than the right.How can I eliminate the residual swelling under my eyes? I am particularly interested in finding out whether there is a non-invasive treatment that I can use.
