Unlike a traditional brow lift or endoscopic brow lift, a lateral temporal lift does not lift the central forehead and brow. Instead, it arches the brow up at its outer corner. This prevents an overly open eyed or surprised look. Some may simply want a more classic arched brow even if they are younger and have not experienced aging.
Also known as a lateral brow lift, mini brow lift, and mini forehead lift, a temporal brow lift is a cosmetic surgery that is less invasive than a typical brow lift. It only has one small incision hidden in the hair and using telescopes, the outer 1/3 of the brow and forehead is lifted. People can heal from this procedure over a weekend.
