Will People Be Able to See Your Facelift Scars?
Facelift scars are camouflaged by clever placement, making them very difficult to see once they heal. Specifically, facelift incisions are placed:
- Behind the ears
- Along or within the hairline
- Underneath the chin (in a natural crease)
The placement of your facelift incision will largely depend on the type of facelift surgery you opt for. For example, a mini facelift may only require an incision around the ears, while a full facelift may include incisions along the hairline and behind the ears.
If you’re concerned about facelift scarring, it’s a good idea to talk to your plastic surgeon about your questions. During the consultation period, your plastic surgeon can walk you through what to expect from facelift scarring, so you can feel 100% confident about your surgery.
