Abstract


In routine plastic surgery practice, cryotherapy is usually performed for the management of edema, ecchymosis, and pain, especially following both invasive and non-invasive procedures of the facial region. We have clinically used cooling gel eye masks for these purposes following rhinoplasty. We have not experienced any complications or problems regarding the use of these masks. They are available in various designs, cost-effective, reliable, and well-tolerated tools that contribute to improved postoperative comfort of the rhinoplasty patients.
