1 month post Facelift and Fat transfer to chin and cheeks, I have 2 pea size lumps under my eye. Is it normal to feel lumps?

Lumps under eyes after face lift and fat injections
Swelling after a face lift and small lumps can occur as swelling subsides.
The lumps may be irritation from sutures or fat - both of this should absorb. Best wishes.

Based on your history it is likely that some fat was injected high on the cheek beneath the lower eyelids. Pea-sized lumps are usually small nodules of scarring due to fat that has necrosed or died. Typically warmth and massage can improve these lumps which should gradually dissolve. Of course see your plastic surgeon for specific advice.
