Temporal Lift is a surgical procedure to shape and lift the temple in an upward direction to have more of a ‘cat-like’ appeal. When a patient combines temporal lift with Canthoplasty, this combined operation may be called as Cat Eyes.
The operation is purely to enhance one’s appearance, as this operation allows people to improve uneven or saggy skin. Additionally, shaping the temple this way is also viewed as attractive, younger-looking and exotic, with many female models around the world showcasing it.
Temporal Lift is a minor and superficial surgery. 4 hours after the operation, you can get up and start to walk, there won’t be any limits to your mobility. No bed rest required. Slight pain is expected. During temporal lift, spring threads in silicone or polyester structure can be used. In general, it is an operation that does not involve technical differences. The scar is almost invisible.
During the operation your eyebrow edges and temple area are lifted up with 3 or 4 cm incisions made in the temple. If it is combined with the Canthoplasty for Cat Eyes; your surgeon makes an incision up to 1 cm from the edge of the eyelid and place the lateral canthal ligament in the higher position.
