Does chronic glomerulonephritis increase the risk of facial swelling following lower face lift surgery?

Facelift Swelling

Head-face
Any medical condition causing swelling can increase edema following a facelift. Your PMD should be part of the team looking after you making sure you are in optimal condition and a good candidate for Plastic Surgery.

Does chronic glomerulonephritis increase the risk of facial swelling following lower face lift surgery? I suffer from chronic glomerulonephritis which causes my knees, feet and face to swell occasionally. Would a lower face lift provoke a swelling episode

I would think that your history of swelling elsewhere would certainly also apply to your face following facelift surgery. It however is not an independent contraindication for surgery - just that it will take a bit longer for recovery.

How long does it take for facial swelling to go down after a bone graft surgery?

Facial swelling

Face
The swelling that is normally expected is usually proportional to the surgery involved.   Swelling around the mouth, cheeks, eyes, and sides of the face is not uncommon.   This is the body's normal reaction to surgery and eventual repair.   The swelling will not become apparent until the day following surgery and will not reach its maximum until 2-3 days post-operatively.   Use frozen pea packs

The left side of mt neck and face are swollen. How can I tell if my lymphnodes are swollen? And can they cause facial swelling? Lymphoma?

LN DDx

The differential diagnosis (DDx) or multiple possible causes of increased size of lymph nodes (LN) or lymphadenopathy is large. You should see a doctor to see if you have an infection. A cancer such as lymphoma is a possibility, but so are many other causes.

I was treated for an abscess tooth today. had mild facial swelling on right side of face, but is getting worse. is this normal?

Antibiotic,steroid

Tooth_abscess
Control the swelling and the infection then you will not have the pain. Infection is controlled by the antibiotic (Clindamycin) before and after the root canal treatment. Swelling is controlled with steroidal therapy such as medrol dose pak or NSAID (Ibuprofen, motrin, advil) which reduce the swelling and therefore reduce the pain.

Dr. Martin Raff answered:

Can doxycycline cause: facial swelling, skin peeling around fingernails, mild darkening of skin on face? Took for 5 days, then stopped.

Doxycycline

74057946
This is a complicated question. Let me guide you to Drugs.com and you can then access doxycycline and read about it yourself. Facial swelling can be due to allergic reaction. The darkening skin may be due to the sensitivity to sun induced by tetracyclines. Doubt that the skin peeling around fingernails is related, but might be part of an allergic reaction.

About 1 month ago I lost my voice, went to doc and was put on a prenasone pack that I finished three weeks ago...my voice is still hoarse and my face is swollen. I thought facial swelling might be caused by staten meds I was put on during the month but

See ENT

Side_effects
The facial swelling MIGHT be due to steroids even though this would be uncommon side effect from a short-term high dose quick taper of steroids. If your hoarseness was caused by vocal cord edema, you would have noticed some improvement. Now, you should have an ENT look at your vocal cords directly with a special camera in the clinic to determine the cause.
