Do Facelifts Leave Scars?

Plastic Surgeons serving Denver, Littleton, and Surrounding Areas in Colorado


Because Dr. John A. Grossman and Dr. Philippe A. Capraro view your facelift as a work of art, they want to leave you with a facelift customized for your unique characteristics with minimal scarring.

Any surgical procedure will leave scars, but a skilled plastic surgeon will make sure your scars are nearly unnoticeable after your facelift.

The potential for visibility of your scars also depends on the type of procedure you elect. Because a full facelift is a more extensive procedure that refreshes your entire face, it will naturally produce more scarring than less comprehensive procedures.

Many patients opt for a mid facelift, which focuses on the central region of your face between your eyes and your mouth. Another option is the mini facelift, which is often chosen by patients in their 30s or 40s who want to correct minor sagging.

Regardless of the procedure you choose, Dr. Grossman and Dr. Capraro take care to place the incisions for your facelift in discrete places. Incision placement along the hairline or behind the ears will minimize the visibility of your scars.
