Have There Been Any Adverse Events from Temporal Reduction Surgery?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I have a few questions for you about temporal reduction surgery if that’s alright:

1) Are there any visible scars that result from the surgery? Would they be permanent?

2) Have any adverse events (especially health concerns) been reported from patients who got the temporal reduction surgery, and if so, what did they report?

A:1) The incision is placed behind the ear in the postauricular sulcus so there are no visible scars.

2) They have been no postoperative functional concerns of lower jaw motion, discomfort and limitations in chewing/eating.
