Is it better to use Ice pack or Hot pack
after double eyelid surgery?
You know that ice/hot pack is good after surgery, right?
However, there are some people who say Ice pack is effective and some for hot packs.
Are you confused?
In fact, both are actually good!
However, the roles of the two packs are a little different.
So let’s take a closer look at how those packs work.
Ice packs are great to help removing swelling after surgery.
Therefore, for the 4 post-operative days, please use Ice pack only as much as possible.
However, some people want to do extra hard and put it while sleeping as well.
Please DON’T do that!
There are a lot of people who need to visit the hospital suffering from frostbite.
You may use the Ice pack only for 5 minutes to 10 minutes at once.
You have to repeat it after 10 minutes break.
After four repetitions, please take a rest from 30 minutes to an hour.
Please don’t do it all day long just because you think it’s good for your recovery.
Do not overdo it for more than 15 minutes because it is rather not good to your skin!
Keeping your skin cold makes your sense to be numb.
So, you may not even know if you suddenly suffer from frostbite!
It is good to half lie down or sit when you put Ice pack.
Especially in the morning, it’s really swollen, right?
So, when you wake up in the morning, you can do opening eye exercise
(practice to lift your eyes ~) about 20 times
and then it is very good if you put Ice pack about 10 minutes.
If you do not do anything and just lay down, the swelling will never go down!
So what role does the hot pack do?
The hot pack helps relieve the bruise by encouraging blood flow circulation.
Remember! Same as with Ice packs, avoid excessive usage.
So, be careful!
Just keep it warm and not too hot when using the hot pack,
repeat same as when you use Ice pack.
Therefore, you do not need a hot pack right after the surgery.
You may use it 4-5 days after surgery.
4-5 days after the operation, you only need Ice pack.
After that time, you can alternate between ice pack and hot pack or just using hot pack.
One more time, you should always pay attention to avoid frostbite and burns
caused by the ice/hot pack!
