DescriptionStitches in upper lids removed on day 6. Facelift stitches started coming out day 6, further stitches and staples removed between day 6 and about day 10. Cast removed from nose on day 6. I quickly looked weird(er): my nose swelled up more; my eyes looked tiny and bland; my face continued to be swollen. I was busy reassuring my family that this was temporary, it would all resolve, but I was dying inside! By another day I was starting to feel pretty depressed.
