About 5 weeks ago I had orthographic surgery and liposuction on my chin. I developed hard ridges on my neck that the Dr says is fluid build up. She said to use heat and massage which I try to do, but the area is very sore, so it is hard to massage. She also said she could inject steroids in the area, but I am afraid of the side effects. How long is it reasonable to wait before pursuing such treatment, and could this swelling be permanent, or will it eventually clear itself up? I am 58 YO
My Question is About Using Steroid Injections on Swelling After Orthographic Surgery and Lipo on Chin?
