Temporal Lift

A Temporal Lift, also known as a Temple Lift or Lateral Brow Lift, is a cosmetic procedure designed to rejuvenate the upper part of the face by addressing sagging and aging-related changes, primarily around the temples, eyebrows, and upper eyelids. This treatment is distinct from a full brow lift (browplasty) as it specifically targets the lateral aspects of the brow and forehead, offering a subtle yet effective lift that can significantly enhance one’s appearance by creating a more youthful and refreshed look.

Treatment Overview

The Temporal Lift procedure is ideal for individuals experiencing the effects of aging, such as drooping eyebrows, sagging skin around the temples, and the formation of deep lines and wrinkles. These issues often lead to a tired or worn appearance, which can be effectively addressed through this minimally invasive surgery. Unlike more comprehensive brow lifts that may alter the entire forehead, the Temporal Lift focuses on the outer edges of the brow and temple areas, lifting and tightening the skin to reduce sagging and smooth out wrinkles​​​​​​.

The Treatment Process

The procedure involves making small incisions within the hairline above the temples, through which the surgeon can reposition the underlying tissues to achieve the desired lift. This approach not only minimizes visible scarring but also allows for a more targeted correction that enhances the facial contour without altering the central forehead or the area between the brows. The lift provides a subtle elevation to the outer corners of the brows, which can also have a lifting effect on the upper eyelids and cheek tissues, contributing to a more open, alert, and youthful appearance​

Ideal Candidates

Ideal candidates for a Temporal Lift include those with mild to moderate brow drooping and sagging skin around the temples, often resulting from the natural aging process. It’s particularly suited for individuals seeking a less invasive option to refresh their appearance without the need for more extensive forehead or brow lift procedures. This surgery can be especially beneficial for those who wish to enhance their facial features subtly, without dramatically changing their look​​​​.

Recovery and Benefits

Recovery from a Temporal Lift is typically quick, with most patients experiencing minimal downtime. Small incisions made in the hairline mean that any scarring is virtually invisible, and patients can often return to their normal activities within a few days. The procedure not only lifts and tightens the skin but also smooths out wrinkles and reduces “crow’s feet” around the eyes, leading to a more rested and vibrant facial expression​​​​​​.

In summary, a Temporal Lift offers a less invasive alternative to traditional brow lifts, targeting specific areas of the face to combat signs of aging. By focusing on the temples and lateral aspects of the brow, this procedure can achieve a subtle yet noticeable rejuvenation, making it an attractive option for those looking to enhance their appearance with minimal recovery time and scarring.


A Temporal Lift, also known as a lateral brow lift or mini forehead lift, is a cosmetic surgery procedure designed to rejuvenate the appearance of the forehead and eyebrows. It specifically targets the outer portion of the brow, lifting it to reduce sagging and the appearance of wrinkles. This procedure is less invasive than a traditional brow lift, involving only small incisions hidden within the hairline

The ideal candidates for a Temporal Lift are individuals experiencing mild to moderate sagging around the temples and the lateral part of the eyebrows. This procedure is especially suited for those who wish to address aging signs without undergoing a full brow lift. People looking for a subtle lift to achieve a more youthful and refreshed appearance can benefit from this surgery

During a Temporal Lift, the surgeon makes small incisions within the hairline, above the temples. Through these incisions, the underlying tissues are carefully repositioned upwards, which tightens and lifts the skin around the temples and lateral eyebrow area. This procedure aims to smooth out wrinkles and reduce sagging, with the incisions hidden in the hair to minimize visible scarring

Recovery from a Temporal Lift is generally quick, with most patients experiencing minimal downtime. Bruising and swelling are common but usually subside within a few days. Patients can often return to their normal activities shortly after the procedure, although they may be advised to avoid strenuous activities for a short period. Sutures are typically removed within a week, and any scarring is well-concealed within the hairline

While the results of a Temporal Lift are long-lasting, it’s important to note that no cosmetic procedure can stop the aging process entirely. Patients can expect to enjoy the benefits of a more youthful and refreshed appearance for several years. However, individual results may vary, and factors such as lifestyle, genetics, and the natural aging process can influence the longevity of the surgery’s outcomes
