Question : How much actual “cutting” of the face does a facelift involve? I am interested in having this procedure but am fearful of the amount of bruising that may be involved.
Answer : After a facelift there is a fair amount of bruising. The incisions are placed around the ear and there may be an incision under the chin. These incisions are placed so that they’re very well hidden. The bruising quickly improves in most patients.
