Facelift Scars: How Visible Are They?

A facelift is a surgical technique that restores beautiful bone structure to the aging jaw, cheeks, and neck. A good facelift leaves you looking like a younger, more natural, more subtly improved version of yourself- NOT a tightly-pulled, "windblown," different person.

Both men and women can achieve significant improvements from a facelift procedure. An appropriately customized procedure can make a woman appear more feminine and refined, or make a man appear more masculine with a stronger jawline.

As for the scarring, the modern era of plastic surgery allows scars to be hidden extremely well, so that they are nearly imperceptible, even from a distance of 1-2 inches.

Dr. Devgan hides her incisions in the crease in front of the ear or tragus. She takes care to prevent distortion of the hairline and sideburns, pulling of the ear, and hair loss to ensure a beautiful result.
