Facelift pain mild: Facelift pain is generally mild to moderate, and is easily controlled by the pain medicines i prescribe. I cannot remember ever receiving a complaint of severe pain after a facelift. However, I do instruct my patient to contact me immediately if facelift pain becomes severe, because that could suggest postop bleeding that is increasing pressure on the tissues.
