High SMAS with Fibrin glue, Neck lift, lower eyelid bags, endoscope forehead/eyebrows lift

This was done on July 23, 2018 by board board certified plastic surgeon, Taiwan and Taiwan society of Aesthetic plastic surgery member. I am getting all these greyish coloring to my skin.  The doc told me to massage it with soap and eventually my skin coloring will return it original coloring in about 3 months. When I touch it, it has a gritty feel to it. I don't recall seeing it on my face 5 days post surgery and I only notice it like 5 days ago. He told me it is because my skin got stretched and the skin is dried out?? When I did what he told me to do, I then have some blood on my chin strap. I flew home to USA on Aug 6. I am very swollen and the doc told me to try warm compress. I visited several PS in bay area and I couldn't find one that do High SMAS at the time. One told me I have too much tissue on my face that it is hard to do improve on my laugh line is the reason why I went aboard to get it done.

It sounds as though you have gone through a lot post surgically. I highly recommend you see a board-certified plastic surgeon by the American Board of Plastic Surgery with regard to your concerns. You may locate one in your area on the website for the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Best of luck as you heal.
