At Marietta Plastic Surgery, we offer a variety of facelift options to help you restore a more youthful appearance. A short scar facelift is a popular technique that is designed to elevate your mid-face. The main benefits of a short scar facelift are that it leaves you with a smaller scar and involves less recovery time than a traditional facelift.
The short scar facelift is particularly appealing since patients can wear their hair up without worrying about revealing obvious scars. The incision is made in the crease in front of your ear, but does not extend behind the ear or onto your neck. While this is an advantage, it is also limiting. A short scar facelift does not give your surgeon the same amount of control over the lower face and neck. Because of this, it may not be a good option if you have excess skin in these areas.
The short scar technique is best for patients who have loose skin mainly in the cheek area.
