What Makes the Temporal Brow Lift Different?
Developing wrinkles and fine lines are not the only signs of facial aging. Aging can affect your brow and forehead regions as well. You will see that with age, your brow will droop down, causing you to look much older and tired as time goes on.
If you’re not happy with the look of your brow, you can undergo a surgical procedure known as a brow lift. There are different types of brow lift techniques depending on one’s own specific needs, but the temporal brow lift has the least risks and minimal recovery time.
What is a Temporal Brow Lift?
A temporal brow lift, also known as the lateral brow lift, includes the process of making changes in the forehead area while lifting the eyebrows at the same time. It is used to correct the outer one-third position of your eyebrow while giving the eye a very attractive look.
The Different Types of Brow Lift Surgeries
The different types of brow lift surgeries include a coronal lift, endoscopic lift, trichophytic lift, transblepharoplasty brow lift, non-surgical brow lift using neurotoxin (Botox, Dysport), and the temporal brow lift.
There are two other brow lift techniques that are not very popular due to the huge scars left behind by the incisions used. These techniques are now limited to patients suffering from severe eyebrow asymmetries caused due to trauma or facial nerve paralysis.
Temporal Brow Lift – Procedure
A temporal brow lift is mostly performed along with eyelid surgery but can be performed on its own as well. The procedure involves the surgeon making approximately one-inch incisions behind the hairline, just above the forehead.
The underlying tissue of the brow area is then lifted and repositioned for the desired results. The procedure will require only local anesthesia.
The Benefits of the Temporal Brow Lift Surgery
A temporal brow lift has a number of great benefits that include: has innumerable benefits unlike other brow lift surgeries as it involves the least risk with good results. The benefits include:
• A refreshed, vibrant, and aesthetically appealing look.
• Minimal Downtime and less risks.
• Hidden post-surgical marks since the incisions are made behind the hairline.
• The end-result can last for years.
Temporal Brow Lift – Recovery
After the surgery is completed, there is no need to spend even a night at the hospital. In fact, you can carry on with your normal daily activities within a week. The heavily sagging eyebrows will be gone after you heal completely. You will instead have perfectly positioned eyebrows.
Other brow lifts like trichophytic and endoscopic brow lifts, on the other hand, leave behind bruises that last for approximately ten days.
Temporal Brow Lift vs Other Brow Lifts
Your surgeon is the best person to talk to to determine the correct brow lifts for you. This will depend on your preferred look and type of brows, which includes your hairline. Temporal lift is best for those whose medial brow is in a good position and the lateral brow is flat or downsloping. It helps in improving the aesthetics of the eye.
However, there is no doubt that the lateral or temporal brow lift is the safest among all brow lifts as it involves less risk and shorter healing time.
