Is this swelling normal?
Facelift and stem Cells
As for the use of stem cells in face lift. This is purely marketing and is not based on science. At the present time we can not isolate stem cells in the office for use in surgery. To isolate stem cells one needs a huge laboratory and cell biologist working full time.
I hope you did not pay much for such unfounded procedure

Fluid in face after facelift
If you still have that much swelling and fluid i would highly recommend visiting your surgeon again to ensure this does not need to be drained and that it is not a "hematoma" which is a collection of blood.
I hope things work out for you, but you should most definetly get it checked.
