In brief: Swelling

In the face is a possible sign of angioedema.
This is a type of allergic reaction which causes swelling around the face, lips, tongue, and soft tissues of the throat, that can be serious and requires medical attention. At your age you may be taking a medication (ACE inhibitor) for blood pressure which could cause this reaction. Another possibility is early Bell's Palsy. See a physician.
