Swelling and healing after facelift takes time. The swelling should start to improve over the next several weeks. Healing should be complete in 3 months.

.In 11 days there's going to be a sizable amount of swelling. I certainly would not make any serious judgments at this point time. Check in with your surgeon for reassurance
Your complaints and concerns are quite common so soon after facelift surgery. Please await at least 6 weeks to properly evaluate the results of your facelift surgery.
Difficult to assess without photos to review but you are way to early to make determination of results as early post operative swelling can give unnatural distortions. By 6 wees post op you will have much better idea. Be patient.
There would still be some expected swelling present 11 days after a lower face lift, lateral brow lift and fat transfer to the face. This swelling may not be uniform, so certain areas can be more swollen than others. As the swelling resolves, your face should start to look less pulled and more like yourself. It may take several months for this healing process to occur. Be sure to keep your follow up appointments with your surgeon so that your progress can be monitored.
