Question: What is the risk of heavy scarring from a facelift? I’m female, 44, and interested in a facelift.
Answer: Facelifting is something that is very common. It is important during facelift surgery to make the scars as inconspicuous as possible. It is also important for the surgeon to use techniques to make sure that the scar heals in a way that is most favorable. There is the risk of unfavorable scarring but the risks are small.
