Will my facelift incision raise my hairline?

Many of my Houston facelift patients want to know where the scars will be located after their facelift or neck lift. With the deep plane facelift and even the deep plane mini facelift, the incision will begin just behind the earlobe and then extend around the earlobe, behind the tragus (small piece of cartilage in the middle/front of ear), and then up into the temporal hairline. Some surgeons extend this incision into the hairline. This will raise the temporal tuft of hair and the hairline in this region.

Dr. Funk’s incision for the facelift will extend just at the hairline so this temporal tuft and hairline is NOT elevated. The scar hides well and eventually a small amount of hair will grow through the scar.
