SCARRING THAT RESULTED FROM A POORLY PERFORMED FACELIFT
Visible scarring, hairline distortion and sideburn distortion are complications that occasionally follow facelift and browlift surgery and, as a consequence, these patients will often seek the repair of facelift and browlift scars. These problems are easily repaired using ultra-refined follicular unit transplantation. Transplanted hair can help camouflage even the worst facelift or browlift scars. Camouflage is possible whether these facelift and browlift scars be located around the ears, in front of the hairline or within the hairline. Follicular unit grafts are implanted directly into and around any problematic facelift or browlift scar so as to create a seamless transition between the facial skin and the scarred area.
Hairlines and sideburns that have been moved into unnatural positions or shapes from aggressive facelift or browlift procedures techniques can also be repaired with ultra-refined grafting techniques. Great care is taken to match hair direction and angle in the reconstruction zones so as to produce a completely result.
While the above examples show two common scenarios for the repair of facelift scars, there exists a wide range scenarios for facelift and browlift scar repair. A patient desiring an opinion of his or her candidacy for facelift or browlift scar repair can e-mail photographs to Dr. Konior for a preliminary assessment.
