    Scarring to correct this will be in front and behind the ears.

    Thank you for your question about a neck lift and the risk of hypertrophic scarring. This should not be a problem. Neck lift incisions go around the ear. There is usually a small incision under the chin. Healing in these areas is usually excellent. Scar hypertrophy (thickening) can usually be avoided by handling the skin gently and, if thick scars still form, with taping, massage and injections. Chances are you will have an excellent result. Hope this helps. Best wishes.
