Dear AerobicgalThank you for your question and photosThe tight feeling will soften with time.  The lumpiness- depending on location and reason will soften with massage and if needed some ultrasound or injections.With Warm RegardsTrevor M Born MD

5 months postop

It is not common to feel lumpy and strangled at 5 months after a deep plane facelift. Also, there is some bruising on the left side that is hard to explain. You should get a second opinion to figure out why. RegardsDr. J
