Facelift hematoma and scarring
Hematoma after a facelift is a known complication. If properly treated, the final result of a facelift should be the same. On occasion some temporary induration (firmness of tissues) can occure at the site. It usually resolves on it’s own after 2-3 months. On occasion mechanical massaging, ultrasound or judicious injections of Kenalog are indicated. Make sure you keep all the follow up appointments with your surgeon, as he will do his best to assure proper healing of your facelift.
