Nose: cold press for 5 days, i think. After that is warm press to reduce bruising.
Eyes: cold press for 1 week. Don't apply warm press!
As for the scorpion grass medicine, please do not sukak-sukak boil and drink! Yes it's proven to reduce bruise and swell fast, but also, you might get diarrhoea! It's said to upset the stomach quite abit. So unless you are staying indoor, with nobody snatching toilet with you, then maybe you can try. But, this herb is very "cooling", so, as i said earlier, don't sukak-sukak buy and drink!
I personally tried Sinecch, well, i think seems to work quite ok. I had posted Rachel's phone number before. Call her to buy a box. No point going to Watson's, Guardian blah blah blah, you won't find a box of Sinecch on the shelf smiling and waving at you.
For my eyes, yes i'm doing fine. Thanks for all concern.

perhaps jovin can give a better "real-life" account.
but from what i have read so far, you need a cold press for the first 3 days, and a "warm press" for the subsequent days (perhaps warm towel, etc?).
there's medicine for you to reduce swelling, and many people buy a herb known as scorpion grass (literal translation from chinese). heard that it's really good.
i am soooooo looking forward to having my rhinoplasty and double eyelid surgery in oct/nov!
Hmmm... what should I do next? Cheekbone reduction maybe?
