tightness, pressure and tingling in cheeks

I had a facelift 9 1/2 months ago.  The tightness, pressure and tingling in my cheeks is getting stronger. I feel it constantly.  I can't focus on anything else.  Feels like I'm wearing a mask. A nightmare.  Will this eventually go away or do I need additional medical help?

These symptoms are somewhat unusual at this late stage after a facelift.  While some patients experience prolonged numbness (and this may be what you are actually experiencing).  These problems should ultimately disappear with time and are related to the healing process.

I too have these symptoms and my facelift was 4 years ago.  Things seemed to ease up a bit and then came back with a vengence.  I have been to a long list of drs for the past year and have had not success.  Everyone in the plastic surgery arena say it's not possible to still have these symptoms, but they are very real and getting harder to deal with over time.
If you find any relief I would greatly appreciate the information.
