Temporal LiftIn temporal lift, excess skin in the temporal area is cut out and the face is given a young look. One of the most affected regions is the temporal area of face by combined effects of aging, genetic heritage and gravity. Particularly after 35, skin’s elasticity reduces. And this leads to deformations in the skin. Skin starts to get loose and droop. Downward movement is seen in the temporal area and this puts pressure on the outer part of eyes and eyebrows. As a result of this drooping, skin in the temporal gets deformed. The only solution for drooping skin in the temporal area is temporal lift. 

What is Temporal Lift?

Temporal lift is one of the fastest facial surgeries. Temporal Lift is applied under general anesthesia. In general, a temporal lift procedure takes 30 to 60 minutes.

Temporal lift starts where the temporal unites with the scalp. From incisions made in the scalp, temporal skin is lifted up. If the level of drooping on a patient’s temporal is high, excess skin should be cut and removed. Some people want to have eye surgeries along with temporal lift. Particularly those who have intense wrinkles around eyes have eyelid surgery, temporal lift and eyebrow lift in combination. If you want to see a noticeable change around your eyes, you may consider combined surgeries.

Temporal lift operation is defined as a minimally invasive procedure performed in a short time. After the temporal lift operation, sutures are placed on the incisions and bandage is applied to the patient’s head area for approximately 1 or 2 days. While the patient is discharged, she/he is informed about the dressing care, and the bandage is removed 1 or 2 days after the operation. 

After the temporal lift operation, the patient should sleep with her/his head up for a week. The reason for this is to reduce swelling and bruising. There may be bruising around the patient’s eyes and forehead. This situation disappears within a week or 10 days. The bruise and foggy make-up can be camouflaged if the doctor deems it appropriate. Applying ice for 1 day or 2 days after temporal lift operation is effective in reducing swelling and bruising. Ice should not come into direct contact with the skin. The patient’s sutures are removed on the 10th or 14th day after the operation.

Why Does the Temporal Area Droop?

Due to the general deformation on the face, the temporal area can drop by time. For sure, one of the most important reasons for this drooping skin is gravity. Skin tissue that cannot block the effect of gravity gets softer, loosen and droops over time. In addition to gravity, aging, skin quality, smoking, not exercising and an inordinate lifestyle lead to temporal drooping at early ages. Despite the fact that people have temporal lift in their late 30s, because of external factors, they may also be seen drooping also at younger ages.
