You have many face lift options at Marietta Plastic Surgery to achieve the look you desire. Our Atlanta plastic surgeons are committed to providing you with the lasting results you expect when you choose a short scar facelift.

Benefits of a Short Scar Face Lift

A short scar face lift can rejuvenate your look and bring back your youthful appearance. The many benefits of a short scar facelift include:

  • Less recovery time than a traditional facelift
  • Smaller scar than a traditional facelift
  • Elevates your mid-face for a youthful look

With a short scar facelift, you will heal more quickly and have less scarring than a traditional facelift. You should be able to wear your hair up without worrying about revealing unsightly scars.

Candidates for Short Scar Face Lifts

Patients who want to correct mid-face sagging and eliminate deep creases from the nose to the mouth will be good candidates for the short scar facelift. A short scar lift is not as effective in correcting sagging skin around the neck. A traditional facelift is more appropriate to remedy neck issues.

To find out if you are a good short scar face lift candidate and to get all of your facelift surgery questions answered, call us today at 770-425-0118 for our Marietta office or 678-494-2380 for our Woodstock location.

The Short Scar Face Lift Procedure

The short scar face lift begins with a small incision in front of the ears instead of the larger incision along the hairline that a full facelift requires. During the procedure, your plastic surgeon will tighten your skin and facial muscles to smooth away your mid-face sagging and skin creases. The procedure only takes a couple of hours.

Your skin and muscle are not fully separated from your face during this type of facelift, which allows for less bruising and recovery time than a traditional facelift. You should be able to go home the day of surgery and only spend one to three weeks recuperating.

If you are ready to see how a short scar face lift can rejuvenate your look, please contact Marietta Plastic Surgery today for your consultation with a qualified Atlanta plastic surgeon. We welcome patients from Atlanta, Marietta, and surrounding areas.
