What’s a temporal lift?

A temporal lift is a surgical procedure to smooth out the wrinkles and sagging on the temple of the face.

Surgical Process


The first step of the surgery is to have a detailed consultation with your doctor. In this meeting you’ll discuss your expectations, medical background and details of the surgery. Your surgeon will inspect your skin type and anatomy and decide on a suitable process.


On the day of the surgery, local anesthesia is applied and small incisions are made on the temple of the face. These cuts are generally hidden on the hairline. The surgeon tightens the skin via these incisions and takes out unnecessary skin. The surgery process lasts about 1-2 hours.

After surgery:

Bruises and swelling may be apparent after the surgery. But they usually decrease after a couple of days. Most patients can return to their usual life and activities after a couple of days. It’s important to obey your surgeon’s instructions for a healthy recovery.

Recovery after a Temporal lift:

Swelling and Bruises: After the surgery it’s normal to have bruises and swelling for some days. Cold compress can relieve these symptoms.

Pain Management: For mild pain you can use the painkillers your surgeon prescribed. The pain is usually gone after some days.

Stitch Removal: The stitches are removed about one week later. It’s important for the stitches to be clean and dry for infection to not occur.

Full recovery: The complete recovery process lasts up to 2-3 weeks. You should avoid heavy activities and use the skincare products your doctor has recommended.
