EXPERT Q&A

Q: A limited incision facelift sounds appealing. Is there a perfect candidate for that?

What our experts say:

I find that what tends to happen with a limited incision facelift is you are cutting corners and the incision tends to, when you're putting it together, be somewhat bunched and it's not my preference to have a scar that's kind of lumpy initially and then over time it goes down. It's not as elegant a healing process. I find that a little bit longer of an incision helps it to be smoother from the very beginning and heals beautifully. So while it is conceptually attractive to have a short incision, the reality of healing short incisions often is associated with some lumpy, bumpy things that aren't as elegant.
