I had a mini-lower lift 4 months ago. I had a lot of issues with recovery most of which are slowly resolving. My primary remaining issues are tightness, pulling and numbness around ears. But here's the strange part: For the last 6 weeks when I wake up in the morning and for the first 1.5 - 2 hours of the day, I have almost no facial discomfort.(Even usually numb areas feel completely normal!) Everyday I hope the normalcy will last longer than 2 hours, but so far it hasn't. Any ideas?

Facelift Recovery Varies
Tightness After Facelift
Full recovery from a facelift procedure may take up to 6 months, so I would continue to wait for the final results. Recovery varies from person to person, and I would not worry about it at this early stage.
Facelift recovery and scarring
Recovery after facelift may take time. However, persistent discomfort may be associated with a progressively thickening scar or scar contracture that should be addressed. I perform may facelift procedures in Los Angeles and ask patients to massage daily.

Awkward sensations of pain 4 months after facelift may be normal, but an exam is necessary to determine any issues with healing.
