Do Temporal Implants Pose Health Risks?

Dr. Eppley, I have uneven temples and I can’t work out the reason and I’m not sure if they need reducing or the one just needs an implant to make them look even. I just wanted to know the risks of surgery and the chances of serious health issues.

A: It comes down to which temporal side you prefer, the smaller or the fuller. That is a decision you have to make. It is fair easier to augment the smaller anterior temporal side that it is to try and reduce a fuller anterior temporal side. There are no health risks in doing so.
