Lymphatic massage will help decrease the post-op swelling.
But check with your surgeon first. And I wouldn't do this for at least 3 weeks after the surgery. But you can do some of this massage yourself too. Just make sure you always massage in the direction of the pull. You don't to pull against your sutures.

the short answer is yes. However, doing this properly needs a person trained in lymphatic massage. Most of the swelling typically resolves in about three weeks or so following a facelift with simply cold compresses and head elevation. so if you gain a few days or a week you would need to decide if this is worthwhile.
