All surgeries leave scars, but our Atlanta area patients are often concerned about how visible their facelift scars will be. Our plastic surgeons treat your facelift as a work of art; we strive to make your scars as inconspicuous as possible.
Factors that can influence your level of scarring after a facelift include:
- The elasticity of your skin
- How well your body heals from the procedure
- Your lifestyle choices, such as being a non-smoker and eating a healthy diet
We know that every patient has concerns about scarring, and we take care to place your incisions in discreet locations – such as along the hairline or behind the ear – to make your scars as unnoticeable as possible.
Be sure to discuss your concerns about scarring during your initial consultation with your plastic surgeon. We can recommend alternatives to a facelift that may suit you better. You may want a short scar facelift or try a non-surgical procedure to achieve your desired results.
