The most significant difference between a temple lift and a brow lift is that a brow lift raises the entire brow area while the temple lift raises the outer part of the brow. In order to raise the whole brow, your surgeon may need to use longer incisions. Some surgeons now use endoscopic cameras to perform a brow lift with small incisions, but this still results in swelling and bruising.
A temple lift involves minimal downtime and only two small, hidden incisions. Because it only involves a small area of the face, it causes less bruising and swelling. Only a consultation with one of our surgeons can help you determine if a temple lift will give you the results you want. The effects of a temple lift will be less dramatic than a brow lift. However, for people whose concerns focus mainly on the temple and outer brow area, the results of a temple lift may meet their needs.
