I’ve heard of something called a temporal browlift that can be performed right in the doctor’s office. How is this different from a traditional brow lift and how effective is it?
A temporal browlift differs from a traditional browlift in that the only incisions are made in the temple area vs. traditional, temple plus mid forehead incisions are made. In the temple lift, only the outer most (or lateral) part of the brow is lifted. The mid brow and portion of the brow closest to the midline (medial brow) can’t be elevated. The temple lift is ideal in those limited circumstances where only the outermost portion of the brow needs to be lifted. This can be done under local anesthesia in an office setting. We perform most surgeries in our office based fully certified surgical suite so whether it’s a temple browlift or traditional browlift; it’s all performed on site.
