The swollen ear/ears are not the norm, PLEASE seek immediate care from your chosen surgeon or urgent care/emergency room. Could be infection/bleed/edema. Keep us in the loop as the the issue.

Swollen Ears After a Minilift

Some edema can be expected after a Minilift or facelift procedure.  This can be exacerbated by compression garments worn after surgery or related to factors outlined by Dr. Blinski. Stay in close contact with your Surgeon.  Was this a lifestyle lift?
