5 weeks post op I have a hard lump in my cheek which goes under my jaw and behind my ear which puts a lot of pressure on my ear. Is this normal. I am told I am in the 5% of patients that experience adverse event from the suture line and this will disolve over time. It is on one side only and unsightly. I did experience more than the usual amount of swelling in this area and was drained on day 7 & 14. The second week only 1cc of old blood was removed. What should I expect?
