Vision and hearing problems like this can be temporary but it has never been a big problem as it is not complete vision or hearing loss, and it is always temporary. It is caused by swelling and trauma to the areas, so when this reduces over time, the hearing and eyesight will return 100%. It usually does not last for more than 1 week or 2. We have never had any permanent problems with any patients over 5 years.
Some of the potential complications that may occur include hematoma (an accumulation of blood under the skin), infection, and reactions to anesthesia. While plastic surgeons are trained in techniques for safely manipulating facial skin and tissues, injury to underlying structures is possible, though usually temporary. Facelift incisions are usually quite inconspicuous; however, this is not entirely predictable due to individual variations in healing. You can help minimize certain risks by following the advice and instructions given to you by your plastic surgeon both before and after surgery.
