What Are The Possible Side Effects Of A Custom Temporal Implant For A Head Widening Effect?

Q: Dr. Eppley, Hi I want the custom anterior temporal implant design for a head widening effect. My questions are: 

1. what are side effects. 

2. In case after surgery it is too pain, is it possible to get the injected filler out and back to normal.

A:  In answer to your custom temporal implant questions:

1) Such facial implants are not associated with any significant pain so this is not a concern.

2) Any type of facial implant can be removed if so desired although removal due to excessive pain is not a patient problem I have yet encountered.
