Can anyone tell me or advise me, why I still have swelling around my jaw and jowl area, it is now 5 months from my smas facelift, which I had done in september 06. The area is still sore to the touch, I thought by now the swelling would have gone down.
Hi laurenday, I am not sure swelling like that is normal at 5 months have you checked with your ps? Some girls do take longer than others to heal. Perhaps someone will come along who has had the same problem as you Good luck

I am 2 years post and still have mild swelling in the areas you have. It feels stiff, and tender to touch. Only in those areas though. I am going to see a neurologist to see if there is a problem or if it will resolve on its own.
Not many people have this problem, hopefully yours will resolve sooner then mine has...
Thanks Chez and Jules, I have had this swelling right from day one of this facelift, at the begining it was very swollen, looked like the jowls were still there but very swollen now after 5 months the swelling has gone a bit. The area is sore and puffy to the touch, I thought by now this would have resolved. Saw the PS a week ago said "slow healer" he also said this, a month after facelift. Not very happy with outcome Is there anything I can do?
