Nipple sensation and facelift surgery
What?? I can't think of any link between the two. You must have mixed something up. Did you have another procedure done at the same time as your facelift?
Facelift and nipple sensitivity
Facial surgery should not change nipple sensation. Breast surgery can and often does, however. Did you have breast surgery concurrently?
Nipple sensory issues
I think we are missing something here. Did you or did you not also have a breast augmentation or breast surgery? A facelift would not impact nipple sensation.

I cannot conceive of how any facelift could change nipple sensitivity
I cannot think of any way facial surgery would have a direct impact on nipple sensitivity.
The solution referred to as "breast implant pocket solution" is just a very dilute mix of antibiotics. It is commonly used in many types of (breast and non-breast) plastic surgery to rinse out the surgical area to clear it from debris and bacteria, and minimize the chance of infection.
There are neurologic conditions that do cause loss of sensitivity in one part of the body or another – you should have this symptom investigated to rule them out. The timing of the surgery would have been coincidental. Visit your regular doctor, or a neurologist.
