I know the incisions are located behind the ears for the facelift. Does this distort the ears in any way?
When the incisions are properly placed they should not distort the ear. The incision should fall in the crease behind the ear and the junction where the ear lobule is attached. Typically this incision is difficult to see and hides well in most patients. If the facelift incision is closed with a lot of tension on the skin, there can be distortion of the ear lobule, causing a “pixie ear” deformity.
