Concerned about face lift at 19 days
- Everyone worries about their face lift - this is natural
- You are still swollen
- Discuss your concerns with your surgeon, ask if you need tape or bandage support for swelling and be prepared to wait 6 months to see your final result.
- Already there is significant improvement but - we all want perfect without waiting but it does take time.
Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.
Hope you find this information helpful. Best wishes.

You made find a support garment may help to support your neck and reduce the inflammation otherwise I would suggest cool packs and gentle massage to assist in reducing the swelling.
