What Is A Lateral Brow Lift?

By: Dr. Shoib Myint


Many plastic surgery procedures are designed to rejuvenate the upper face. If you are prone to Crow’s feet and sagging brows, it may be time to consider a brow lift. Oculo Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon Dr. Shoib Myint offers the advanced lateral brow lift to help you achieve the most desirable aesthetic outcome in Beverly Hills, CA and Las Vegas, NV.

A drooping brow or wrinkled forehead can make you appear tired or angry. There are different brow lift techniques based on your needs, but the lateral brow lift has minimal risks. The following indicators can help you understand whether you could benefit from a forehead lift from Myint Oculo Facial Plastic Surgery.

About the lateral brow lift

As we age, a decrease in skin elasticity causes our forehead and brows to droop. A brow lift surgery works by raising the brow for a younger-looking appearance. Because this treatment focuses on the upper face, it can also make the eyes appear awakened and refreshed. A lateral brow lift (also called a temporal brow lift) is a technique that addresses common signs of aging in the outer one-third of the brow. Benefits of the lateral brow lift include:

  • Less scarring
  • Fewer post-surgery side effects
  • Rejuvenated facial appearance
  • Long-lasting results

How the temporal brow lift is performed

During a brow lift consultation, Dr. Myint will evaluate your brow area and learn about your cosmetic goals. People who want to address Crow’s feet and sagging brows in a less invasive way are great candidates for this procedure. If you have other goals or desire more comprehensive results in Beverly Hills, CA or Las Vegas, NV, we may recommend an alternative treatment. We then provide details about your surgery recovery.

Myint Oculo Facial Plastic Surgery begins by making lateral brow lift incisions in the hairline just above the temples. Our office is careful to place incisions in precise areas for minimal scarring. We then treat the outer portion of the brow and reduce visible sagging. After your forehead lift, you will be taken to a recovery area where you will be monitored by trained medical staff. Patients can return home with a friend or family member.

What happens after surgery

As with any plastic surgery, a temporal brow lift will cause some swelling and bruising in the treatment area. Any discomfort can be controlled with some prescription medication and cool compresses. Patients will need to avoid strenuous activities, although light walking is encouraged. Keep your head elevated at night to reduce swelling and make yourself feel comfortable. The average recovery period is 6 – 8 weeks, but Dr. Myint can give you a specific timeline in our office.
