Did anybody else deal with lumpy jowls after a neck lift?
- Last updated: 3 years ago
I had a neck lift 6 weeks ago. My neck looks better, but I have lumps in my jowls and feel so self-conscious about them. It kind of looks like I had acne as a youth- but I didn't. My surgeon didn't seem alarmed when I saw him at 5 1/2 weeks. He told me to massage them for about a minute a couple of times a day. He also gave me a steroid shot in each cheek, but a week later, I can't tell any difference. He says it will probably take 4-5 weeks for my cheeks to settle down, but I'm worried. By the way, I am 57 years old. When will the numbness go away? Will my face ever feel normal?
