Damaged nerves after facelift
- It is difficult to answer your question without seeing you
- Sometimes, there the surgeon may pull a little tighter because as you heal, the skin will relax
- If you are numb, that is normal, and the feeling should return after 6-8 weeks
- If you are really concerned, I would see a specialist to evaluate you
