It is possible that you have swelling of the jawline after liposuction at two months out.  Give it at least 3-4 months minimum.

Unfortunately, you haven't provided a photograph for evaluation.  I recommend that you see your plastic surgeon.  Also, since you report swelling of your entire face, I would have concern as to whether you are having an allergic reaction which is completely unrelated to your cosmetic procedure.

I would have to say that swelling of the face after neck liposuction would be unusual and I think you should see your surgeon to see what is going on.
