Lateral (Temporal) Browlift
The tail of the brow can start to fall with aging and the brow shape flattens or even looks droopy. This makes others perceive you as melancholy or tired. A lateral, or temporal, brow lift elevates the tail of the brow, restoring the shape of the arch and making patients appear rejuvenated, rested, and more feminine. This can be accomplished through a small incision behind the hair line on each side that is imperceptible after it heals. Brow asymmetry as also very common and this can be improved with a temporal brow lift.
There are many different brow lift techniques. While some people may benefit from a procedure that lifts the central brow, this can create an unnatural “surpised” look. For most people, a temporal brow lift produces the most natural appearing result that is both long-lasting and with minimal scarring. An added benefit is that a brow lift often improves the appearance of the upper eyelids, sometimes eliminating or delaying the need for upper eyelid blepharoplasty.
Temporal brow lift can be performed with twilight anesthesia. Recovery is relatively easy and discomfort is minimal after just a few days. Sutures are removed in the clinic after 1-2 weeks.
