I had a face & neck lift 3.5 years ago and I am still experiencing swollen jaw area & tingling sensations in my cheek areas. Sometimes I feel like I am going to choke the chin/neck area is so tight. I exercise, massage, hot/cold compress, etc but nothing is relieving the swollen areas. Any ideas?
At 3 /12 years post facelift, all of your scar tissue is fully mature. Some patients do experience areas of permanent numbness around their ears. You would need an examination to determine the cause of your current neck/chin symptoms which may not be related to the facelift procedure.
Thank you for your advice, I went to see a doctor and I have very swollen lymph nodes. I had an ultrasound this morning and we found several masses. I do not have the report yet but at least we are finding an answer to my troubles.
Any idea if this is a result of the surgery? Could I have picked up an infection after surgery?
