Lumps and Hard spots along jawline after Mini Facelift, curious if this is all normal? (photo)
Doctor Answers (11)
Swelling and lumps take time to subside after a face lift.
- What you are describing sounds perfectly normal.
- It takes 6 weeks for significant improvement and 6 months or longer for a final result.
- Be sure to see your surgeon so s/he can follow your recovery to be sure all is well.
Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.
Hope you find this information helpful. Best wishes.
I see nothing to worry about three weeks after a facelift.

Tightness and minor lumps are normal 3 weeks after a facelift
It is good that you feel very tight at 3 weeks because the skin always relaxes after a facelift and the longer you feel this tightness the less likely you are to have recurrence of sagging in your neck.
Very minor irregularities are normal and usually can be resolved with gentle massage.
However it is important that you see your plastic surgeon have him examine the lumps and be certain that there is no hematoma or other issue beneath the skin.

Lumps 3 weeks post facelift.
It is perfectly normal to have some areas of hardness and small lumps 3 weeks after a facelift. At this stage of healing I recommend to my patients using warm compresses and gentle massage of the area. Once everything heals you should expect the skin to be perfectly smooth.
