I had a rhinoplasty 9 weeks ago and still have raccoon eyes. Does the co2 treatment help?

Raccoon eyes after rhinoplasty

Nine weeks is along time for bruising after rhinoplasty. Keep your head elevated when sleeping, use warm pads to dilate the blood vessels to wash out the bruises, and ask your surgeon if decongestants can help with any element of the raccoon eyes that may be related to "congestive shiners."
