Anything I can do to alleviate numbness, tightness & discomfort I continue to experience 3 years out from a full facelift?

Very unusual pain syndrome after a facelift.
Facial pain 3 years after face lift
- From your description, it seems likely that your pain is from dilated blood vessels from hot weather.
- That can definitely make your face too tight from increased blood flow.
- Cooling the face with ice compresses probably will help, so will air conditioning.
- But I wonder if you have high blood pressure as the underlying cause of this problem.
- Or are on a vasodilating medicine.
- In addition to seeing your original plastic surgeon, you should see your regular doctor as well to be sure that high blood pressure or some underlying condition medicine isn't the source of the pain. Best wishes.

I recommend that you try acupuncture.
