We do not hear of this complication in our practice.  You need to see your surgeon regarding the stiff neck and range of motion problems

This is not normal in my 35 years of doing facelifts.  See your surgeon to find out why you have this.

Face lift does not cause long term stiff neck with limitation od motion.

See a spine specialist or orthopedic surgeon to investigate possible c-spine problems
