Does A Mid-Facelift Cause Scarring?

Where are the incisions made during a mid-facelift? I want to make sure they are hidden so the scars are not noticeable. If they are made near the hairline, will I have to shave my hair in those areas?

Dr. Azizzadeh’s Expert Answer

Any incisions can cause scarring. But if a mid-facelift is done through the hairline in the temple then scarring is kept to a minimum.
