How do I avoid “elf” ears from a facelift?

Answer:

One way to avoid the removal of the sideburn and temporal hair is to properly design the incisions for a facelift. In addition, the ear can sometimes be distorted looking like an elf or “pixie” as well. I spend a lot of time designing and properly closing the incisions so that the risk of these deformities is minimized. This also adds a lot of time to the overall surgical procedure, but it is well worth the result!   Back to Questions
