Temporal and Frontal Facelift

The temporal facelift is performed on the temples:

Sometimes this procedure is preformed using an endoscopy (a very thin tube with a camera). It lifts the outer part of the eyebrow and tightens the skin around the corner of the eye and the upper cheekbone. This deals with the earliest signs of ageing (35-40 years of age). The drooping brows that close the eyelids, is what most people are trying to correct artificially by plucking the underside of the eyebrows and by using eye liner to draw the eye up and give a more open and fresh appearance. This also allows us to lift up sagging cheeks and reduce fine lines or “crow’s feet” around the eyes.

Frontal facelift:

This procedure has dropped in popularity since the arrival of Botox. It focuses on the wrinkles of the forehead, especially when they are very deep or when a patient does not want to resort to the use of Botox.

These procedures can be practiced individually or successively. Depending on the state of the skin and the interest of the client, we can combine several procedures, for example, liposuction under the chin, an eyelid procedure, and a liposculpture, (removing fat cells or the weakening of some facial muscles to improve the contours of the face)…No matter what technique is applied, all facelifts are designed to correct signs of aging on the face in function with the perception, more or less objective, of the patient and the doctor. All plastic surgeons state: the perception or view of what is considered as signs of aging is varied depending on the patient. Certain people focus on the sagging cheeks or jowls, others it’s their crow’s feet or the “bags under their eyes”. With a large part being subjective, most people focus on one sign of aging and don’t see the more obvious ones. This is why these types of procedures require a very personal interpretation depending on the unique appearance of the patient. Quite often, without a doubt, it is the wrinkles of the forehead that are the focal point for most patients, specifically the “lion’s wrinkles” that appear between the eyes. Today, the average age for a first facelift has dropped dramatically from 50 to 42 years of age. From a strictly medical perspective, this is good because it guarantees the best results because the younger the skin, the better it reacts to the surgical procedures.
