Temporal Lift

How is a Temporal Lift different from a Face Lift?

Unlike a full brow lift or facelift, which target larger areas of the face, a temporal lift provides a focused and targeted approach to address sagging or drooping eyebrows and excess skin in the temples. The procedure offers natural-looking results with minimal scarring, as incisions are discreetly placed within the hairline, and downtime is typically shorter compared to more extensive facial surgeries. If you’ve noticed a hollowing or indentation in the temples or sagging brows, a Temporal Lift might be a great choice for you.

A Temporal Lift specifically targets the outer portion of the eyebrows and the temporal region of the face. It focuses on lifting the outer brows and smoothing the temporal area, whereas a traditional Brow Lift addresses the entire brow area.

Incisions for a Temporal Lift are typically placed within the hairline above the temples, where they are well-hidden and minimally visible. Any scarring that does occur tends to fade over time and become less noticeable.

Temporal Lifts are carefully planned to minimise any disruption to the hairline or hair growth. We take care to preserve hair follicles and ensure that incisions heal inconspicuously.

The results of a Temporal Lift are long-lasting, providing patients with a more lifted appearance in the outer brows and temporal region. While the natural ageing process will continue over time, the effects of a Temporal Lift can last for many years.

While some initial swelling and bruising are common after a Temporal Lift, patients can typically see noticeable improvements in the appearance of the outer brows and temporal region within a few weeks to months after surgery. Final results may continue to improve as swelling subsides and the tissues settle into their new position.
