Neck swelling after facelift
A hematoma after a face lift can cause thick internal scar
I am so sorry you had a complication from your face lift.
I can see how troubling it can be -
- You have a lot of internal swelling - it should get better, not worse with time.
- Internal scars improve but it is hard to hurry the process
- Massage, compression bandages, ultrasound and steroid injections may, or may not, help.
- If you have lost faith in your surgeon, get a second opinion from another plastic surgeon.
Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.
Hope you find this information helpful. Best wishes.
