Will Temporal Implants Look Fake?
Q: Dr. Eppley, do you think temporal implants is gonna have a positive change to my face? I want my upper face be wider than the lower part but I don’t want it to look fake or obvious. Lastly, can the temporal implants be fixed permanently so there is no risk of displacement?
A: I would have no concerns with temporal implants about looking fake or being too big. Conversely the issue is actually whether they do enough and satisfy your aesthetic desires. The implants are placed in pockets beneath the temporalis fascia so there is no need for fixation to prevent displacement as there is nowhere for them to go. They can not get outside of the pockets that are made to receive them.
