Can Both Muscle and Bone Be Removed In Temporal Reduction Surgery?
Q: Dr. Eppley, Can I ask three questions about temporal reduction surgery? I have wide head.
1: Can you scrape the bones under the muscles of the temporal region? I learned temporal muscle reduction surgery by reading your articles as it will work for making head width more narrow.
To be honest my case is so severe that I wonder if scraping the bone as well as anterior and posterior muscle reduction is needed.
My back head (especially right side) is flat so here is needed to insert an implant. This is why my face bone is totally weird, not only back but also side,around the top of the head as well.
2. Can I take consultants with you face to face? I know I can take it with virtually but I hope I can take face to face consultation with you.
I never mind extra fees.
3: Do you use plastic surgery simulator for computer?
A: In answer to your temporal reduction questions:
1) Bore reduction can be done as well as muscles reduction but to do so that will change the location of the incision from behind the ear to the side of the head.
2) I will have my assistant Camille contact you to schedule an office face to face consultation time.
3) I always use computer imaging to try and demonstrate potential results.
