As you age, your facial tissues lose their elasticity, which can cause your face to appear droopy. Nowadays, there are many elective procedures that can be used to tighten your skin depending on the area of the face that needs to be treated. If your outer eyes, upper cheeks, and outer brows are showing the passing of time, you might be a candidate for a temple lift in Chicago. Advanced surgical techniques are used to lift and tighten the tissues to achieve a youthful appearance. Rest assured, your results will look natural, and you won’t need to worry about any noticeable scars.
A temple lift, also known as a temporal brow lift, is an elective procedure used to raise the outer brow. By doing so, it softens the visibility of crow’s feet and tightens the skin around the temples. Your outer brow and the upper cheeks will also look tighter through a minimally invasive procedure. Dr. Wiesman can combine a temple lift with other treatments to achieve optimal results.

A temple lift is a less invasive procedure that still offers drastic results. Only the outside corner of the

Dr. Wiesman will perform a thorough consultation to ensure your physical health meets the requirements of the surgery. In addition, he will assess your concerns and learn more about your goals to determine if it’s the right option for you.
After your initial consultation, you’re scheduled for your procedure. Sedation or local anesthesia is used to ensure you are comfortable as a small incision is placed in the hairline near the ear. The underlying tissue is raised to elevate the outside of the brow and eyes. Any excess skin is removed before the incision is closed using a few small sutures.
