I had a lower face skin lift 5 days ago and look awful. I had a full facelift 6 years ago and was really happy withy the results. This procedure (done by the same PS) has left me badly bruised, swollen and with puckered skin on the mid face coming out from my ear incisions. Am I expecting too much too soon. Is this normal? I am trying not to panic. I see the doctor tomorrow for my first post-op.
