I find that the incision must be to the 2 o'clock position in the hair line. 12 0'clock is straight up fron the center of the pupil of the eye. A more lateral position will not bring up the temple and outer eyebrow enough. The scar is well hidden in the scalp hair. This is a nice procedure especially if done with a mini-facelift.
As stated by others the incision is typically about an inch in length but every situation is unique and modifications may be required. With any incision the size matters less than ideal placement and final appearance.
Since the lift is actually from underneath a 2.5 or one inch incision can be used. since they heal so well . the incision shouldn t really matter

This incision can be in the hairline if the hairline in fairly far forward. If the hairline is fairly far back, then the incision is at the hairline. If only the brow needs to be elevated, then a 1-1.5 inch incision is all that is required. Also, our trademarked Invisiline procedure can...
Temporal lift will alter your hairline by raising it and your outer brow. The length of the incision depends on the amount that needs to be raised-usually 1 inch.
