Reasons to undergo a revision face lift surgery - Kare Plastic Surgery in Los Angeles

There are many reasons to undergo revision face lift surgery or corrective revision of a previous face lift.  The most prominent and commonly seen condition is known as a pixie ear scar in which the earlobe is pulled downwards along the jawline causing an abnormal appearance of the earlobe and ear lobule.  The patients who have undergone face lift surgery or rhytidectomy who have pulling of the earlobe and abnormal appearance of the earlobe after face lift surgery of neck lift surgery can undergo a procedure known as a revision face lift or corrective face lift surgery in order to reduce the pixie ear problem and minimize scarring along the earlobe and ear lobule.  This may entail reduction of the earlobe and ear lobule.
