At 6 weeks following facelift surgery, circulation to the flaps should not be an issue. Circulation issues tend to get better with time and not worse.
Hello, Thank you for the question. Circulation problems for a facelift tend to occur early on within the first week. I suspect what you are seeing is some hypo pigmentation associated with tension around your incision area. If this is the case I would wait longer as some correction may occur with time.

Dear micel, If the ears aren't turning black or blue, the circulation should be fine If you have any concerns, please see your plastic surgeon for a physical exam, there is very little we can advise here My guess is that the circulation is being re-established along the incision line Best regards, Nima Shemirani
