Who Is a Candidate for a Temporal Brow Lift?
Patients whose outer brows have descended into a lower position with age can be good candidates for this procedure. Lifting the outer brows can often resolve upper eyelid hooding, so patients who want to restore a more refreshed eye appearance may be candidates for a temporal brow lift as well.
Candidates can also be patients without age-related concerns. Some patients undergo a temporal brow lift to achieve a specific brow shape that they find more aesthetic.
Candidates must understand the limitations of the temporal brow lift. While it is an incredibly efficient method of enhancing the brow contours, it does not address frown lines, forehead creases, or issues with the inner and central brows. An endoscopic brow lift or classic brow lift may be necessary for patients seeking improvements throughout the entire brow and forehead areas.
The patient’s general health can affect candidacy for this procedure. Elective surgery may not be safe for individuals with certain medical conditions. It is important to provide Dr. Sanan with complete health information, so he can properly evaluate your candidacy for a temporal brow lift.
What Happens During a Temporal Brow Lift Procedure
The patient will be put under the effect of anesthesia before Dr. Sanan starts the surgery. To begin the procedure, Dr. Sanan will make one incision near the temple area on each side of the head. Based on the patient’s hairline and/or preference, the incisions can be positioned discreetly behind the hairline or at the hairline.
Dr. Sanan can then access and reposition the underlying tissues to recontour the outer brows. To complete the procedure, sutures will be used to close the incisions.
How Long Does It Take to Recover from a Temporal Brow Lift?
Temporal brow lifts are associated with shorter recovery times than more extensive forehead lift techniques. Post-op swelling tends to be mild after a temporal brow lift. Minor bruising can also occur. These effects generally don’t persist beyond five to seven days.
Some patients experience hair loss or thinning at the incision sites after a brow lift. This is temporary in most instances, though hair regrowth may take several weeks.
Temporal Brow Lift Results
You will notice a difference in the position of the outer brow immediately after your surgery. Changes will continue as swelling diminishes over the next several days.
The longevity of temporal brow lift results is typically shorter than with more invasive brow lift procedures. However, temporal brow lift outcomes are still considered long-lasting, as the enhanced brow shape can last for several years.
Over time, the aging process will affect the contours of the brow. Occasional non-surgical collagen-stimulating treatments and radiofrequency or ultrasound skin tightening can aid in extending your results. A clean, healthy diet and diligent sunscreen use can also support firm, youthful skin long-term.

To encourage a consistent look throughout the face, patients may be advised to combine a temporal brow lift with surgical procedures such as:
How Much Does a Temporal Brow Lift Cost?
Temporal brow lifts vary in price as it relates to the total surgery time, surgical techniques required, and facility and anesthesia fees. Combining the procedure with an additional facial plastic surgery will also impact the overall cost.
