See your doctor: You should mention this to your doctor since he/she has been treating you, he/she may have more insight.

Nerve : There are many potential reasons for this which may or may not be related to your facelift surgery. If related to the facelift, it could take up to 2 years to resolve. However other causes should be evaluated prior to that. I would discuss your symptoms with your surgeon who may perform an examination.

See a neurologist: Tingling in the tongue is unusual. See a neurologist for a thorough exam.

Neurologist: It would be unusual to be related to the facelift but possible that there was never injury. See a neurologist to pinpoint injury. It may be something totally unrelated.

New issue: I agree it is probably a coincidence that this symptom developed at the time of facelift. I would see a neurologist.
