Neck pain and swollen stitch in the neck area

This is a question that I answered for a patient who had something done from another doctor.

Pains and aches after any procedure including a null is a natural process and sometimes the cost of being beautiful. It is almost impossible to not have these after any procedure. The question is how painful it is and if it is causing you to be in a state where you can’t function well on a daily basis. The stitch might need to be removed if it continues to cause you problems and can be done very easily.

The headaches are due to sutures pulling on your facial muscles and will get better. You might need some different medications to help you with your pain and transition.  Sometimes the pain is due to nerves being caught and is rarely indicated to have a procedure to alleviate this nerve impingment.  Muscle relaxants, anti inflammatories, Nerve relaxants can all help your situation and can be discussed with your doctor.  Don’t worry this will get better. Just be patient.  Your doctor will hold your hand, so to speak, through this whole process.
