As you know, you will have swelling after your cosmetic facelift, sometimes lots of swelling. I used supplements before surgery and after... during surgery recovery, to help keep face surgery swelling and liposuction swelling at a minimum.

The FDA approved supplement called SinEcchi™ has a homeopathic ingredient called "Arnica Montana" that helps keep chin liposuction swelling and face lift surgery swelling down. Click on recovery surgery for directions on how I used this powerful supplement after facial cosmetic surgery.

You may also find that alkaline water and an anti-cellulite diet (also known as an anti-inflammatory diet) may help swelling to go down after a plastic surgery face lift with chin liposuction.

During cosmetic surgery face lift procedures the doctors may reposition muscles and facial fat to smooth and soften your face for that more youthful look.

Cosmetic surgery face lift incisions will vary because Doctors’ techniques vary. Be certain to ask specific questions about all your cosmetic surgery facelift scars, and how you can help heal a surgery scar.
