Can Injectable Fillers Be Used For Temporal Muscle Augmentation?

Q: Dr. Eppley, Hello I was just wondering if you can have fillers on the temporal muscles as implants seem risky. I was checking if there are any non surgery ways of doing this I will attach a photo of the temporal muscles.

A: Temporary injectable filler or fat injections can be used for temporal augmentation and is good starting point to see the effects. Ultimately temporal implants offer the only permanent augmentation method and are actually the safest method as they sit in either a submuscular or subfascial position depending upon what temporal area is being augmented.
