In a traditional facelift, the incision scar can loop around the ear into the hairline. While hidden, it is a longer incision needed to access and address the excess skin in the lower face. A short scar facelift has the benefit of a reduced incision, while still providing a rejuvenating effect for the face. At LM Medical NYC, we offer several different types of facelift surgeries at our clinic in Manhattan, including the short scar facelift.

Dr. Lesley Rabach is one of the most talented facial plastic surgeons in the country. Part of her success is due to her focus only on facial procedures, including her exceptional facelift surgeries. She offers the short scar facelift to her patients who are looking to rejuvenate the lower cheeks around the nasolabial folds (smile lines), the jowls and jawline. This technique has a shorter scar that is less noticeable and may be a better option for some of our patients.

Is a Limited Incision Facelift Right for You?

The short scar (or limited incision) facelift is not the right choice for everyone. While it does eliminate the incision and scar behind the ear that is used for traditional facelifts, it does have limitations. The short scar facelift is best for those who are undergoing a mini facelift or midface lift surgery, or a deep place facelift in their 40s or 50s. It is also called a “ponytail facelift” as it eliminates the scar behind the ear that may be noticeable if you wear a ponytail. However, for those with excessive extra skin or sagging, a short scar facelift may not be sufficient to remove skin and lift the lower facial tissue.

If you are considering your first facelift, a short scar facelift may be an option to achieve the results you desire. To learn more, contact us at LM Medical NYC to schedule an informative facelift consultation with Dr. Lesley at our upscale clinic in Greenwich Village.

I’ve been visiting LM medical for 4 years. The staff is always welcoming. The location is beautiful and modern. Dr. Morgan and Dr. Lesley are amazing physicians. They are very personable and genuine. They are open to questions and addressed all of my concerns. I have been more then pleased with my experience with LM Medical and I highly recommend this office.

Dr. Morgan Rabach and her staff provide top tier care and excellent service. Dr. Rabach is well-versed in the latest research. She made lots of time to discuss my dermatological history (what’s worked, what hasn’t worked, what hasn’t been tried) and all the available treatments to find the best path forward. She didn’t settle - pushing to make sure I got the best results possible. Would recommend without any reservations!

Toni D.

I have been seeing both Dr. Lesley & Dr. Morgan now for almost about three years now. Each time is better than the last. I trust them for natural results & they always deliver. What I value most is that they are never pushy! Always open, honest, and they are just overall good people.

Xavier M.

Dr Morgan and her staff are very warm and efficient professionals. She provided me with straightforward answers on three different concerns and more importantly, found the adequate treatment for me right away. A well staffed and organized team! Highly recommended.

Emily B.

The staff are incredibly friendly and so helpful. The wait times are very short, the space is clean and modern, and they're very quick to respond to questions over the phone or email. I needed a detailed receipt for my insurance and they gave me two different versions until my insurance was satisfied. The doctors are friendly, laid back, and really listen which is awesome. Would highly recommend!!

Fun, safe and the results were perfect. Can’t wait for my next procedure!
