Temporal Lift minimally invasive procedure

Restoring Your Natural Beauty

The Temporal Lift is a short minimally invasive procedure developed by Dr. Shahar to refresh your look with a quick recovery.

Minimize the Need for Fillers

If you are 35-50 years old and not yet ready for a facelift, but have jowls and think you need fillers, think again. Dr. Shahar’s temporal lift can improve the jowl area and the deep lines around your mouth without fillers. The procedure is done with simple tiny incisions above your ears.

Local Anesthesia

The temporal lift is an office procedure performed under local anesthesia that can make you look younger. You will be able to return to work the next day!

A Good Solution for Middle Age

This procedure provides improved appearance of your cheeks, improvement or elimination of your jowls and the laxity in the neck.  The temporal lift can make you look 5-10 years younger with minute hidden incisions that leave extremely tiny scars.  Dr. Shahar will tell you if you are a good candidate for this procedure.
