Facial enhancement surgery can be performed in many different ways, and can sometimes go by different names. At Troiano Facial Plastic Surgery in West Palm Beach temporal brow lift is a procedure similar to a brow lift, but is typically less invasive and addresses the outer part of the brow by the temples.
The procedure also goes by many names, such as a lateral brow lift, mini brow lift, or mini forehead lift. Regardless of the name, the goal of this procedure is to address common signs of aging, loose skin and lower position of the brow.
Dr. Troiano believes that cosmetic surgery procedures should be carefully customized to suit each patient’s needs individually. She offers precise treatments like mini brow lifts to better serve those who may not need the traditional, and more extensive, approach.
The lateral brow lift, unlike the full procedure, only uses one small incision, carefully hidden within the hairline. The procedure addresses the outer 1/3 of the brow and aims to slightly lift the eyebrow to achieve a more refreshed and youthful look.
It’s often used to help compliment a blepharoplasty or patients who may be looking to brighten their appearance with a subtle but significant improvement.
During your consultation for a temporal brow lift Palm Beach facial plastic surgeon Dr. Chelsea Troiano will describe the techniques offered and what you can expect from the procedure and aftercare.
A full brow lift is an extensive procedure that can help deliver dramatic results for patients who are more mature and need their entire eyebrow repositioned to optimize their facial contour.
It works by lifting the tissue from the brow and forehead, repositioning it properly and trimming away any excess to help ensure a long-term result. A brow lift is also known as a forehead lift, as it focuses on this area. Because we work across the hairline of the forehead if indicated, the hairline can be pulled down to place it in a lower position. A temporal brow lift, however, works to achieve similar results, but on a smaller scale. It might be best for patients who are looking for a less dramatic result or simply want to sharpen the edges of the brow.
The cost of a temporal brow lift in Palm Beach generally depends on the different factors necessary to complete your procedure. Things like costs for the surgical and anesthesia team, as well as any other procedures or techniques that might be required to achieve the desired results will ultimately affect your final cost of a lateral brow lift.

While the approach may be somewhat similar, a forehead lift is not the exact same procedure as a temporal brow lift. You’ll be able to fully discuss the difference between the results of a forehead lift and a mini brow lift and together with Dr. Troiano determine what the best surgical plan is for you.
A temporal brow lift is a cosmetic surgery procedure, which is intended to have long-term effects. The surgery is intended to be permanent, but you may see shifts in your face and overall profile after five to ten years, typically due to the natural side effects of aging, lifestyle changes, and weight fluctuations.
During your consultation at our facility in South Florida, you’ll be able to discuss payment and financing options. At this time, Dr. Troiano does not take insurance. However, Dr. Troiano and her team can provide you with the appropriate documentation to be reimbursed by your insurance company if this is what you desire.
As with any cosmetic enhancement, appropriate anesthesia will be provided. A temporal brow lift can be performed under local anesthesia and Dr. Troiano will ensure that you have no discomfort before beginning the procedure. It’s not uncommon for patients to experience some discomfort after the procedure, but you will be given detailed instructions for ice and pain medication to help reduce any discomfort.
A temporal brow lift might be an excellent choice for patients who are struggling to achieve a sharper facial profile that still looks natural. When performed by a talented and experienced cosmetic surgeon, a mini brow lift can help deliver excellent results that patients find beneficial. This tends a preferred procedure to combine with an upper lid lift to achieve a brightening of the eyes and a refreshed look.
Patients who undergo a full facelift are generally between the ages of 40 and 65. However, a lateral brow lift might be better suited for younger patients, especially those who are genetically predisposed to a heavy set brow or hooded upper eyelids that they find displeasing.
A temporal brow lift will not alter the shape or slant of your eye. It is meant to target the area around the brow and help to lift the upper eye and forehead.
