Had a lower bleph with CO2 Dot laser treatment. It's been 3 days since my surgery. Is Medral pak helpful for swelling?

MEDROL FOR SWELLING AFTER EYELID SURGERY
DOT - CO2 laser and blepharoplasty - eyelid surgery
A Medrol dose pack (steroid) is helpful with regards to swelling created from both the lower eyelid surgery and the laser skin treatment.
Swelling can be reduced even more when the steroid is started right before the procedure, but yes - it is hepful to reduce unwanted edema or swelling.
