Typical Post-Operative Symptoms
Typical symptoms of facelift surgery and signs to watch for following a facelift include:
Tightness or numbness of the cheeks, face and neck: Bruising and swelling beneath the eyes. A pale, swollen complexion: These are normal experiences as the skin, tissues and sensory nerves heal. Pain medication will help you cope with any discomfort. Consistent sharp pain should be reported to our office immediately.
If you have a drain placed in any incision, you may also experience localized discomfort at the drain site.
