Temporal Face Lift
About the process
As we age, the visible changes are manifested on a number of levels: skin may become loose and inelastic, jowls become deeper and more pronounced, the neck slackens, and the youthful volume from the upper cheek region and mid-face decreases. Restoring youthful beauty with a facelift takes all of these elements into consideration. The best approach is always one that re-establishes facial harmony and a refreshed appearance.
Temporal Face Lift (lateral lift, lateral brow lift) is a variation on a brow lift and uses incisions placed in the hairline at the temples. This technique can smooth out small wrinkles in the forehead, around the eyes and in the area between your eyebrows at the top of your nose.
The Temporal Facelift Advantage
A temporal lift can give a firmer look to the face by lifting and tightening skin around the cheeks.
For patients with early signs of mid-facial and brow ptosis or sagging, a full endoscopic forehead and midface lift may not be necessary. For such patients, a moderate degree of lateral brow and midface elevation can be achieved with the temporal lift. Temporal Facelift offers a more permanent correction and is safe and effective.
What is the Temporal Face Lift Procedure
Early facelifts simply pulled the skin tight, giving an unnatural “wind-swept” look to the face. Modern plastic surgeons elevate the “SMAS” (fat and fibrous tissue) layer to correct cheek jowls.
Incisions are hidden in the hair wherever possible. These usually begin above the hairline at the temples; extend in a natural line in front of the ear and just inside the cartilage at the front of your ear.
Your surgeon will separate the skin from the fat and muscle below. Your surgeon will then tighten the underlying muscle and SMAS membranes, pull the skin back, and remove any excess. Stitches secure the layers of tissue and close the incisions.
Following surgery, a small, thin drainage tube will be temporarily placed under the skin behind your ear to drain any blood that might collect there. Your surgeon will also employ an elasticized compression garment over your cheeks and secured under your neck to minimize bruising and swelling.
A temporal facelift usually takes 2-3 hours and can be combined with other procedures.
