Hi everyone. Today is day 10 since the surgery. I am feeling a lot better, however still take Tylenol (2) three times a day. The discomfort is completely manageable . My face is still very bruised and swollen. Neck looks really good! My face, particularly cheeks are wide, hopefully it will come down soon. While I originally described my story, I did not mention that dr. Steiger had to correct the previous facelift, the one I had 17 years ago. Particularly under my chin there was like a ripple , very unsightly. I think it was the major reason why I went for this facelift. Also, the previously done FL, was don per some hammock method, which left long sutures on each side of my check. This left me with a feeling like I am hanging from the ceiling by my ears. It was so unpleasant ! I had that feeling for 17 years, especially when I was overtired, or when it was cold outside. Very weird and unpleasant feeling. Well, dr. Steiger removed those sutures, and it immediately provided me a relief! So grateful for that!!! Even though, I have pain around my ears and tightness, since I just had the procedure, it is better than before the old sutures were removed!
I don't think that that old method is used anymore...
Pain scale: 1-2
Hurts just a little bit
