I used this product for several hours over two days and it left a crease under my chin where the fabric is stitched, even though you wear it sort of inside-out so that the seam stitching is on the outside. It seems to pull up too tight for the first few days after neck lift surgery, even though I ordered according to the recommended (before surgery) sizing. I'm hoping my crease goes away now that I've stopped using it and went back to the simpler chin strap my doctor provided.

I used this following upper/lower eyelift. They are very thin, gel-like eye masks that conform perfectly to your eyes. They seem a bit fragile and won't last forever, but will certainly provide nice cool comfort following surgery. If you keep the set in the refrigerator or in ice water, you can switch to another mask when the one you're using is no longer cool (which, unfortunately doesn't last very long since they are so thin). I also tried keeping them in the freezer and rotating from there. They came out as flat wafers that you had to rest on your nose and wait a minute for them to "melt down" and conform to your face, but the cooling lasted longer. I had very little brusing using this as well as the blue gel-filled eye masks that I also bought here and kept in the freezer. Those stay cooler longer and you can put pressure on the blue gel masks to follow surgeon recommendations for pressure massage following removal of your stiches. You might want to get both types of masks.
