Could Health Problems Have Been Caused by Facelift Trauma?
A few years ago, my mom had a face/brow lift that caused bruising and swelling for months , and - about a week after surgery - her cheekbone implants slid down into her jaw, and she had to have them removed. A year later, she developed burning eyes and mouth, facial pain with temperature changes, and tinnitus. Doctors have suggested it might be Sjogrens, though her autoantibody tests are negative and her eyes and mouth aren't clinically dry. Could her problems have been caused by the surgery?
