    There is quite a bit you can do to help reduce your bruising, but it depends on the type of surgery you are having done. What you can do after eyelid surgery is different to what you can do after breast surgery.

    As some general tips, avoiding vigorous excercise during the recovery period, avoiding supplements that can thin your blood such as ginger, garlic, and fish oil, and avoid medications that can cause bleeding such as Aspirin.

    Any of this has to be done after consultation with your qualified Plastic Surgeon. 

    I hope this was helpful.
