Mini Lift: Q&AAsk a Question
Face Lift Postoperative Complications?
I had a Mini face lift & a chin implant replacement 6 weeks ago. 4 weeks after I had additional surgery because the implant shifted, that surgery was done intra orally. About 10 days later I developed swelling and redness and I was put on antibiotics and the next day I woke up with a large abcess under my chin and my surgeron drained it and left an open incision for draining. I still have swelling, numbness & pain and my ears are very sensitive. Is that normal? Should I get a second opinion?
