How long should swelling and numbness last after Lifelift?

Q:

I had my neck and lower lids done. Today is Sept. 19 and I had my procedure on August 4th. My face is still numb and I have swelling and bruising around my chin and neck. My ears, especially the right one, are numb and painful. Is this normal?

A:

Ruth,

 Yes, the concerns you are expressing could be normal in a post operative course for a lower lid bletharoplasty and facelift. May I suggest you write down your concerns, schedule an appointment with your surgeon and ask them to address each issue you have presented here. Make sure to write down the answers and that you understand their explanations. Best,
