Are Sutures Ever Placed Horizontally in Back of Head at the Hairline?
Is it common to place sutures for a necklift (or lower facelift) in the back of the head, just behind the ears, but horizontally in the hairline? I was surprised that one of the popular facial plastic surgeons I visited for a consultation said this is the way he would do it. I could see better results when he pulled to show me how it would improve the neck, but can't find any info that any other doctors practice this method. Thanks.
