Post op 7 day facelift, layer of grease across cheeks (Photo)

Why has my cheek skin and hairline by ears got almost like a layer of waxy grease causing white (sebum) spots by ears( not on stitch line) no amount of washing or washing my hair is getting rid of the oil ?? Spots much worse behind ear and neck

Dear Carpet60

Thank you for your question and photo! The glands in the skin can become obstructed with skin elevation- your MD can prep and open these with a needle tip.  This will settle with time.

With Warm Regards
