Is it normal to have a swollen, hard, sore area under the chin 4 weeks after liposuction? Also, is it normal to still have no feeling in one of my ears and the sutured area behind the ears still red and crusty?

Hard Lump 4 Weeks after Liposuction
A lump is not unusual, but a fluid collection should be ruled out. Transient numbness due to neuropraxia may take a few months to resolve. Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA
