I am a young male who just had a facelift, as i had had several Voluma injections on the cheekbones untill i realized they were not doing the lift i wanted. As i didnt want to displace the sideburn my doctor told me that the best place for the incisions was around the sideburns. Also determined by the vector needed. Was this actually a good idea and a good job?I am pretty scared that my scars will be very noticeable. Even though he said he left hair folicules in order to conceal the scar.
Are my scars and incisions normal? After short scar facelift? (photo)

Face lift scars
The photograph suggests that you have just had the face lift and sutures are still in place. The incision and placement shown in the photo look fine. It takes at least 6 weeks for these scars to begin to fade.
