What Is The Recovery From Temporal Implants?

Q: Dr. Eppley, Im very interesed in the temporal implant/augmentation for a more youthful look.I have atrophy from weight loss and aging over the years.I also feel that there is some geneic predisposition for me to have this,as well.I no longer wear my hair pulled back because it accentuates the problem. I have a very busy business and am curious how much downtime this procedure requires? Also, how effective are they and can they be removed in the future?

A: Thank you for your inquiry. In answer to your questions about temporal implantsTemporal Shell Implant Dr Barry Eppley Indianapolis:

1) There is very minimal downtown from temporal implants. You could return to your work within 48 hours with only minimal temporal swelling.

2) Temporal implants are the most effective treatment that I know for temporal hollowing. The surgery is short, down time minimal and the volume results stable and permanent.

3) Temporal implants can be reversed just as easy as they are to put in.
