I’m from Round Rock and I’m interested in getting a facelift. I understand that the scar can go both in front of and behind the ear. I tend to wear my hair up and am concerned that I won’t be able to after the surgery as the scar will be very noticeable. Is it possible for women to wear their hair off of their face as in a ponytail after a facelift?
We pride ourselves for the fact that our patients can wear their hair in any style they want to after a facelift. Our post auricular incision is performed right along the posterior hairline. It is carefully sutured and usually heals without visibility. Incisions can also be made into the hair behind the ear however when done in that way a surgeon has to realign the hairline to prevent a step-off. Usually the neck does not lift well in that vector
