Get another opinion after lifestyle lift.

You really shouldn't be experiencing such discomfort seven weeks after a facelift. I would suggest you see someone experienced in the procedure.

Sorry to hear about your recovery difficulty. I would follow up with your Lifestyle Lift surgeon to ensure that everything is healing properly. If you have difficulty with follow up then I would seek out a qualified and experienced facelift surgeon in your community to determine if everything is healing normally. Good Luck.

I am sorry to hear that you're having such a rough recovery from your facelift procedure. It would be best if you returned to Lifestyle Lift for followup. If you're not able to be seen at that facility I would seek a second opinion with a board-certified Facial Plastic Surgeon to ensure that you're healing properly. I hope you feel better soon.
