My sons football coach said that my son broke his nose and that he had to put it back in place, but my son did get any black eyes just a slight bruise?

See a doctor: The coach may be right that your son's nose was broken. Even with minimal bruising and the nose apparently now well aligned, a deformity could result as it heals. Don't mess around with this, and for sure don't rely on the coach's word. Get your son to a doctor. ...Read more

How much bruising and swelling will I have after the lifestyle lift? Is swelling less than a traditional facelift? I would like to lift my eyes and reduce my wrinkles. I was looking at having a facelift and then heard about the lifestyle lift. Is one proc

As: As a former surgeon for lifestyle lift, I would highly recommend inquiring with your local facial plastic surgeon about minimally invasive facelift procedures. The original lifestyle lift procedure has a short lasting effect which you will likely have to repeat within two years of surgery.
There are similarly minimally invasive facelift procedures that may be done under local anesthesia that are more efficacious.
That said, there is minimal swelling after minimally invasive facelift surgery, the bruising really depends on how easily you bruise and whether you follow the post operative instructions you are given by your surgeon. Generally, it is advisable to avoid alcohol, Aspirin or nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs (motrin, advil (ibuprofen) etc). The bruising ranges from mild to moderate and is easily camouflageable by concealer makeup which can be applied as early as the next day after surgery as long as it is not applied over the incision lines.
My warmest recommendation is to at least inquire with your local facial plastic surgeon about the indication for surgery and your options. The lifestyle lift company has a tendency to push its doctors and consultants to suggest surgery for nearly anyone walking in the door. ...Read more

My daughter got a concussion last monday, is it normal for her to still have swelling on her forehead...And bruising under her eyes?

My daughter got a concussion last monday, is it normal for her to still have swelling on her forehead...And bruising under her eyes?

Not unusual: If it was her forehead that was struck, she likely had a subgaleal hematoma, blood under the muscle layer of the scalp. It akes a long time to go down, May be a permanent lump but no harm. As blood that accumulates as part of scalp bruises is affected by gravity, some will move down around the eyes giving black eye appearance. ...Read more
