It is possible that the vomiting caused a blood vessel to tear and you have what's called a hematoma. It's something that your surgeon can take care of in the office without any lasting harm.
Facelift swelling at 9 days
Any straining in the first 2 weeks after a facelift has the potential to cause a blood vessel to open and result in bleeding (aka hematoma). Your surgeon should be able to take care of it in the office by aspirating it with a needle.

It appears that a small blood vessel may have torn and caused some swelling,. Your surgeon can take care of that in the office for you when you see him.
