What is a temporal lift

Temporal lift or a plastic surgery of the temporal area is a surgical procedure aimed to address the flaccidity in this area and the drooping of the outer portion of the eyebrows. 

Who is a good candidate for the procedure

Forehead surgery is one of the surgeries performed on clients who experience sagging skin and wrinkle formation as they age. The most marked drooping of the forehead can be observed in its lower section, i.e. in the eyebrow area. If a correction in the field of aesthetic medicine and dermatology by, for example, fillers or laser therapy, is no longer possible, you may want to opt for this procedure.

Before the procedure

If you consider a temporal lift, it is always necessary to undergo a non-binding initial consultation with a plastic surgeon, who will assess whether the procedure is right for you, explain the technique of the surgery, the type of anaesthesia, as well as the possible risks associated with the surgery. During the consultation you can ask any questions, in particular those related to the course of the surgery, as well as your expectations and concerns about the temporal lift results.

When making a binding appointment, you will be given and explained instructions on how to prepare for the procedure, as well as information regarding eating, drinking, smoking and taking or withdrawing from certain medications. Compliance with all these instructions is necessary and will facilitate a smooth procedure and seamless healing after the facelift.

How is a temporal lift performed

The forehead surgery is performed under local anaesthesia with intravenous sedation or under general anaesthesia. In the vast majority of cases, the surgical incision is made behind the hairline to camouflage the scar.

After the procedure

After the temporal lift, you may temporarily experience bruises, swelling, numbness and tension in the skin, a feeling of tightness, very dry skin and increased hair loss. Permanent scarring on the scalp can occur. A semi-seated position preferably on the back and cold compresses on the treated sites across the bandage are recommended. Perform light pressure massage of the scars starting from the 14th day after the surgery. Apply a moisturizing lotion to the skin of the surgery area. It is imperative to avoid chemical hair dyeing for 6 – 8 weeks and face tanning for 3 – 4 months after the surgery. Based on the check-up, the stitches will be removed 5 – 12 days after the surgery. After the surgery, a return to normal activity is usually possible within 2 – 3 weeks.
