Where are the scars for a deep-plane facelift? How much downtime is there for a facelift?

The beauty of a well-designed and well-performed deep-plane facelift is that the result is youthful and natural, and the scar is virtually undetectable. The incision is hidden in the temporal hair tuft, along the back of the tragus, and in the crease behind the ear, outlined in red in the figure above. With meticulous, tension-free closure of the incisions, they become difficult to see by two weeks, and fade with each and every week of healing.

Sutures remain in place for one week, and patients typically feel “restaurant ready” in two weeks.
