For years, plastic surgeons have used lengthy complex procedures to rejuvenate the face. The standard full facelift can take 6 hours to perform and with eyelid surgery, it can last over 8 hours. This is a daunting undertaking for many patients and has led to the development of shorter less extensive procedures with striking results.

Benefits of a Short Scar Facelift

For many patients, the short scar facelift can give remarkable results in half the time, reducing risks and recovery time. The full facelift involves extensive surgery in the face and neck and can require long incisions in the face and scalp. The short scar facelift requires only a small incision in front of the ear and limited dissection in the cheek and neck to allow tightening of the underlying tissue. This then lifts the skin without extensive dissection. In patients with significant excess skin, the incision may extend behind the ear to allow a smooth closure.

Recovery Time With Short Scar Facelift

Since the procedure is much shorter, the patient can go home after the surgery and recover faster with less bruising and swelling. This is a much less expensive option and you can return to work and normal activities much sooner.

"Before Voluma everyone was always asking me if I was sick or sad – and that’s enough to make you sad. After Voluma I get “Hello” and “How are you”, no more sick and sad, just a lot of smiles. I never smiled before Voluma, now I can’t stop smiling."


"Susan does all my skin care and this is the best my face has ever looked. I wish I had come to her years ago. She is honest, not pushy, gives you options and is very concerned. She wants to make you feel good."


"My experience with Dr. Wells and his team was amazing. I was always treated like family, yet professional at the same time. I appreciate Dr. Wells and his surgical team boosting my self-confidence, especially the moment I walked through the surgery center door. Thank you Dr. Wells for helping me love my body again."


"Dr. Wells and his staff surpassed any expectations I had. They were with me with each step of the process. The kindness and compassion shown went above and beyond. They are truly the best and the results are fantastic. I am so thankful for my experience."


"Wonderful Doctor & staff…great experience and amazing results. Thank you for everything."


"I love the results of my surgery. I would tell any mother that is thinking of having Mommy Makeover surgery to do this for herself. I also LOVE Dr. Wells and his staff – they were all great."


"I had great big bags under my eyes that had become permanent after a sad period in my life.  Rejuvapen literally swept the bags away and made my under eyes smooth again.  I couldn't believe it!"


"For my chronic acne Susan began treatments on my face including chemical peels that put my skin in the freshest, best shape possible to allow my skin to heal.  After a month and a half my skin was completely clear."


"Building on Dr. Wells' reconstruction work, Susan Wells accentuated my chin by using Juvederm to give it additional contours and a very natural look. I am beyond thrilled and honestly amazed at how good I look now."


"I was always embarrassed to go to the pool or the beach because of all the hair on my back. I was constantly shaving where I could before I went out. Having Laser Hair Reduction on my back has been life changing. I literally feel like a new man."
