I had an upper and lower eyelid on September 26 2012. Two weeks later I went for a face and chin lift. My plans were just to have my eyes and chin done, but because Ii had some bags below my under eyelid, I decided to go through the whole process of a facelift. My PS told me he was going to be able to removed them. Terrible mistake! I still have the bags, hanging chin and jowls and a big hollow forming on my mid face. Later on I found out that this bags are called Malar bags and can't be removed through a facelift.

It's been two months already since my facelift and I still don't see any changes. I still have my hanging jowls, my chin is wrinkle and I still have bags under my eyes. The only thing I have new which I didn't have before the facelift, is a hollow on both sides of my mid face which I think was created as the PS stretched my skin so much on that area. I've also noticed that the scars are very thick and noticeable. I guess I will never be able to put my hair up any more, because besides the scars, I've noticed also that my ears got longer, like if they have been stretched down. I will like to know if is normal after two months not to see any favorable results. I get very disappointed and anxious as the days goes by. I cry in regret, I should have never done anything on my face. I should have stayed the way I was at least i didn't have this scars all around my ears which are very painful still and the hollow on both side of my mid face.
Its been over four months already since my face...
Its been over four months already since my face and chin lift and I'm still having issues. My jowl are still hanging and my chin is wrinkle. I went to see the PS for a follow up visit and I told him I wasn't happy with the results and he told me that he did his best. That I looked worst before the surgery, referring to the bags under my lower eyelids. which later I found out they were Malar Bags and can not be corrected. Before the procedure I didn't know this. I also told him about the hollow that I have in my mid face, and he told that my face was like that. Of course this its not true. but he doesn't want to admit he did a bad job. As for my chin which looks very wrinkle, he told me that he might do a revision, but he was not sure of the results, because I may ended up getting the same problem. To add more issues, after my last visit, I noticed that I was getting a couple of lumps in my face, near my ear. They are inside my skin. They are hard to see, but when I touch them, they are kind of soft and they move. I called him right away, because I started to get very concern and scare. First of all, they didn't want to get my call. The receptionist put me on hold twice and then they said they were going to call me back. They called me next day to tell me that they were not sure of what these lumps could be, but to wait for my next appointment which is in another month. The nurse told me that the doctor had said that if after a month, these lumps were still there, he was going to inject cortisone on the lumps. I am very worry and honestly, I don't trust my doctor any more. I've noticed that he gets upset every time I mention any of my issues or concerns to him. He was a complete different person before the surgery. Now he doesn't care about anything I tell him. Please, Can any one help me and let me know if these lumps I have in my face, inside my skin are normal and if they are part of the healing process.
Almost six months since my chin ad face lift and...
Almost six months since my chin ad face lift and I'm still having issues with the results. The scars on my ears are still very thick, red and noticeable. The PS has already injected esteroids three times on each side with no positive results. My chin is wrinkle and everytime I refer my issues and concerns to my doctor, he says that I need to keep waiting. Waiting fot what? I don't want him to keep injecting esteroids on the scars anymore. I'm scared that this might have side effects later on. I don't think that my sagged and wrinkle chin is going to get any better. Also these lumps I started to get two months ago on the side of my face, are making me very anxious. The doctor said, they may go away with time. I hope they will go away. I feel very frustrated and sad. I wish I had never had this surgery.
