How long will it take for the scabbing behind my ears to go? I'm 28 days post op lower face lift/neck lift.

Allow the surgical wounds to heal
Caring for scabs after face lift
However research shows that wounds heal faster if they are kept slightly moist.
Ask your surgeon if you can wash gently behind both ears - no soap - 2 x day and then apply a light coating of Aquaphor (a water based ointment similar to Vaseline.)
This allows scabs that are healed to separate and hastens the healing of those that are still healing. Best wishes.
