I had a mini-facelift 5 weeks ago from a board certified ps. Looks great but I'm in pretty much constant discomfort from the tightness/pulling around ears. (Ears are numb, too, but I know that will last a while) On a rare few days I've felt 80-90% normal and the next day I'm back to being miserable. I'm very worried. NSAIDs don't do much. Can you offer some advice? Thank you

Tightness at 5 weeks following facelift is not unusual, but this is somewhat dependent upon technique and patient variability. Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA
