Hematoma after mini face-lift, caused lips and eyes to be swollen shut?

Female, age 68, non-smoker, excellent health until hematoma following recent mini-facelift. Hematoma caused drainage into my lips and eyes (even though neither was a part of the surgery). My eyes were swollen shut, but have now opened enough for me to see. The hematoma was suctioned out, but the problem now is that my lips remain huge. I can’t close them so I drool like a baby. My surgeon is so nice, I don’t want to hurt his feelings, and he has literally been seeing me in his office every day to re-check the hematoma. He thinks it will go away over time;however, my lips remain unchanged. IIs there anything that can speed up the process?
