What is a Temple Lift?

A temporal Lift is a lift that aims at correcting defects of the skin due to aging in the area around the temple, the eyebrow and the upper eyelid.

What does a temple lift do?

A temple lift has an effect on the whole temple area. It elevates the tail of the eyebrow, tightens the upper eyelid and softens crow’s feet wrinkles.

It gives the eyes a more open and youthful appearance and a more harmonious shape to the eyebrows.

PRINCIPLES OF A TEMPORAL LIFT:

What’s the aim of a Temple Lift?

The goal of the procedure is to smooth out crow’s feet wrinkles, to elevate the outer eyebrows and to tighten the upper eyelids to open the eyes.

DESCRIPTION OF THE STAGES OF TEMPORAL LIFTING INTERVENTIONS

BEFORE A TEMPORAL LIFT:

  • Two preoperative consultations with a board-certified plastic surgeon will be conducted.
  • Before and after comparison photographs will be taken.
  • Preoperative instructions are as follow:
    • Quit smoking at least one month minimum before the surgery to one month after the surgery to reduce any complications and avoid necrosis risk.
    • Discontinue any anti-platelet or blood-thinning medication 15 days before the surgery.

TEMPORAL LIFT: THE SURGERY

  • The surgery is performed either under general anesthesia or local anesthesia depending on the correction.
  • It lasts 45 minutes to 1 hour.
  • Dr Vincent Nguyen uses the most advanced surgical techniques and performs the surgery on both sides himself.

The final result is visible after 3 months but the physical improvement is obvious as soon as the first dressing is removed. Over time, it may be necessary to maintain the result of the temporal lift with esthetic medicine treatments (peelings, Botox or Hyaluronic acid injections, laser, …).

AFTER TEMPLE LIFT SURGERY:

  • As a temple lift is not a painful surgery, only light painkillers will be prescribed.
  • Patients may go home the same day.
  • Swelling and bruising appear the following days.
  • Social activities may be resumed after 5 to 10 days, once edema and bruising have disappeared.
  • No nursing care is required.
  • You may have a shower the following day.
  • Follow-up consultations with dr Vincent Nguyen will be planned (1 week, 1 month, 3 months, 6 months and a year after the surgery).

TEMPORAL LIFT: PRICE AND COSTS

  • As a Temporal Lift is an esthetic procedure, it is not covered by Social Security or Health Insurance Company.
  • The costs may vary depending on the patient, on the procedures combined with the temporal lift (neck lift, face lipofilling, eyelid surgery or other face surgery), on the location where the procedure will be performed, on the length of the procedure and other related expenses.
  • The cost can vary from … to … (see all the costs of esthetic procedures on this website).
  • Make sure to find a board-certified plastic surgeon specialized in Face procedures who will evaluate your needs, discuss your expectations and your options to deliver the best natural-looking results.

TEMPORAL LIFT FAQs

Where are the scars after a temporal lift?

There may be 2 types of scars depending on the clinical examination:

The scars are either hidden within the hair or along the hairline.

The surgery may also be performed under endoscopy with reduced incisions.

What other procedures may be combined with a Temporal Lift?

A temple lift is commonly combined with eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) to create a rejuvenated and bright look.

It is also often associated with other esthetic face procedures such as face and neck lift, face lipofilling, or with esthetic medicine treatments (Botox, Hyaluronic acid injections, peelings, …)

What are the alternatives to a Temporal Lift?

Even if the results are not as efficient as surgery, esthetic medicine with fillers (Hyaluronic acid) and Botox injections as well as lipofilling, may help maintain a youthful appearance to the temple area.

Can excess skin cause the eyebrows to droop again?

Over time, the skin loosens and the eyebrows may become heavy and droop again. That’s why it is advised to maintain the result with esthetic medicine treatments.
