Treating Hairline Scars from a Facelift: Revision Facelift

Treating Hairline Scars From a Facelift

Hairline scars are used by plastic surgeons because they are generally well-hidden by hair follicles along the forehead, sideburns, and temples. Most plastic surgeons will use hairline incisions for facelifts and browlifts.
 
With time, however, hairline scars can become exposed as the hairline recedes and there is continued loss of hair coverage. This problem can occur immediately after surgery if there is damage to the hair follicles or years later with diminished strength of the hair follicles as a result of alopecia.
 
In some cases, the hairline incisions can become hypertrophic or widened, leading to poor scarring regardless of the amount of hair you have at the hairline. All of these scar problems can result in poor scars on the forehead, temples, and sideburns.
