I wonder if the facelift was done by a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon(American Board of Plastic Surgery)?
This is a major vascular compromize that will end in some areas with scars.
These issues are seen mostly in smokers.including second hand smoke.
Otherwise this results from elevating the skin very thin in the wrong plane, and the subdermal vessels are injured.
On top of that It looks that you had a hematoma, and that made things worse.
When recognized early treatment is to remove the sutures to relief any tension. Use vasodialators on the skin, May be a hyperbaric oxygen treatment. It is too late now and you need to make sure all hematoma is removed, skin should be treated as a wound to prevent infection and make things worse.
Follow up with the surgeon every other day. Skin evantually will form an eschar which will peel, and sometimes need to be debrided by the surgeon very conservatively. with time raw surface will heal by scarring. Must wait a long time before attempting to do anything to deal with the results.
