How long will tightness from facelift last?
Forehead Lift, Brow LiftFacelift

My facelift and brow lift was 19 mos ago and I continue to feel discomfort from tightness,numbness around ears, and occasional pain in my scalp. I have tried acupuncture,lyrica, muscle relaxants, and massages with no improvement. Would a physical therapist be able to help? My surgeon is sorry and said he would not have done it if he had known that I was such a slow healer! He offers no help other than epsom salts on neck.
