after surgery to reduce any chance of occurrence
in infection and have plenty of sleep.


3. In the summer,

Swelling is subsided within shorter time in summer
than winter as hot weather stimulates blood circulation
which results in swelling to be reduced more quickly.


It is recommend to apply ice-pack for 2-3 days
to reduce swelling
 and then apply warm-pack together
to promote blood circulation which helps fast recovery.


Also you may start to wash your face
after all stitches are removed 
and keep you upper body elevated.
The level of swelling may vary
depending on how you manage it.

4. Extended exposure to ultraviolet radiation is poison
to the operated area.

could be appeared which results in leaving scars
or raising pigmentation.

is required to protect the operated area from the UV.
