Short scar facelift

Short scar facelifts are an alternative to the more traditional approach and involve removing a smaller amount of skin and less contouring. As the name suggests, short scar facelifts leave only a small scar in front of the ear, which rotates gently around the earlobe.

The ideal facelift should make enough changes to make us happy, and leave no marks. However, in life, ideal remains a wish and a guidance, that we strive for.

Preparing for a short scar facelift

Every patient wishing to have a rhinoplasty in Bristol will have undergone a full consultation with Paul so that patients are made fully informed and comfortable before undergoing rhinoplasty surgery.

The hospital in Bristol where your rhinoplasty surgery is taking place will provide patients with full detailed written instructions on preparing for rhinoplasty surgery.

Unless a very minor rhinoplasty is needed, surgery will be performed under general anaesthetic, so you must not eat or drink 6 hours before the rhinoplasty operation.

You will need to stay in hospital overnight after your rhinoplasty.
