Lip numbness after facelift
Lip numbness after facelift is not the norm. You must have had some additional procedure done on the lips. Or, a chin implant???
No sensation on lips 4 months after SMAS facelift
It is not common to have decreased sensation on the lips after a SMAS facelift. If you had a procedure on your lips as well, then this could cause some alteration in sensation. In most cases, this loss of sensation improves over time but sometimes can take 6-12 months to resolve.
Lip sensation after facelifting
Decreased lip sensation would be unusual after facelifting surgery. You sound like you may have had a lip procedure as well, which can affect lip sensation. I think you would do well to discuss your concerns with your surgeon; if this relationship is no longer therapeutic, you may do well to seek another opinion. Good luck in your recovery.
