Massage after face lift
By bellac01 on 29 Aug 2012
I am on day 14 after my chin lift and lower face lift. I had a terrible time with swelling, bruising and some hard scabs by my ear. I do feel better today and my PS nurse told me to do light massage for the bruising and swelling. Is there any special method that one uses. Right now I take a warm shower and let the water fall on my face. Then with a baby washcloth I gently massage with small circular movements the areas that are swollen and bruised,(which is most of my face but getting better each day) rinse with shower and that is it. I would like to do it before bed but not sure about just how to do it out of the shower. What should I use for lubrication? Also, in mid afternoon my face tightens up. My PS told me it is edema and if I need to use cold. HOT Cold just what is going on?
