Lumps After Cheek Lift

Thank you for your question. Yes, this is common as the area is inflamed, and healing. Plan on a 6 week recovery time. For the hardness to dissipate. I hope this helps.

In the postoperative phase, collagen is laid down as part of the scarring process. It takes a full year for the scar to remodel and to mature. The lumps you feel may be this process. Be patient and let yourself heal.
