How long can numbness last after a facelift and is it ever permanent?

Question:
My face has been very numb ever since my facelift. How long can numbness last after a facelift and is it ever permanent?

Answer:
Numbness may be present anywhere from 6 months to a year after surgery due to the time it takes for nerves to regenerate. Sometimes numbness can be permanent, and this is a known risk of surgery.
