All types of surgeries will eventually leave scars and most of our cosmetic surgery patients would ask about how noticeable their facelift scars will be. Dr. Russo and the rest of the team considers each surgery as a work of art and makes it a point to make facelift scars as inconspicuous as possible.
Also, Dr. Russo often creates incisions in the most discreet locations in a facelift such as behind the ears or along the hairline. By and large, the degree of scarring following your facelift is influenced by the following factors:
- overall status and elasticity of your skin which is genetic in nature
- your body’s reaction to the surgery
- your current lifestyle e.g non-smokers tend to quickly recover than heavy smokers
If you are concerned about scarring following a facelift, it is best to talk about these concerns during your initial consultation with Dr. Russo. Contact (617) 964-1440 or fill out this contact form for an initial consultation. Call today to book your appointment with us!
