Swollen cheeks 10 months after mini or lower facelift? (Photo)

Swelling in cheeks
I would avoid steroid injections to the face or any surface treatments at this point. Your swelling/ ("mass") most likely is a looseness of the underlying deep investing tissue called the SMAS. Assuming it is not fluid such as a collection of saliva from injury to your salivary gland, then it may still be residual swelling even after 10 months.
It is always difficult to diagnose much less advise treatment over the internet. Talk to your surgeon, but I would stop all injections, "treatments", lasers, etc for now. Give the tissue a rest for a good 6 months. At that point any revision can be done surgically. Good luck

You should discuss your options with a surgeon or seek a second opinion by an experienced board certified plastic surgeon with good reputation in facial surgery. Good luck.
