Question : I am 67-years-old and have very thin hair like my mother. I want to have a facelift, but will the scars be more noticeable since my hair will not be able to cover the incisions?
Answer : It is very important to place the scars so that the final result is very subtle. Some patients lose hair at the sight of the incisions and this could potentially expose the scars. In cases such as yours, my approach is to close the facelift’s incision as such that the incision is as inconspicuous as possible. Once they’ve healed, hopefully your hair will be able to cover them.
