It depends what type of injury you sustained and when you sustained it. In any case, the injury needs to be evaluated by your facial plastic surgeon. But this does not mean you will need another facelift.
In the first six weeks after a face lift, an injury to the face needs to be evaluated on a case-by-case basis to determine if any surgical touch-up treatment is needed. For example, if the injury affected your incisions, this will need to be addressed.
If the injury occurred six weeks or more after your facelift, it will likely be treated as would any injury to face. Your surgeon will examine you to determine if there are any bony or soft tissue injuries that need to be treated.
If you injured your face after a facelift, contact your surgeon immediately for instructions on how to proceed.
