About Temporal Implants
Recently, temporal augmentation has started to become a popular procedure. Patients can select from fillers and fat to change how the temples look, but these treatments only provide temporary results. With temporal implants, you can enhance the natural contour of your face and achieve long-lasting results. If you experience hollowness near the temples because of aging or a congenital issue, temporal implants can help rejuvenate your appearance. At Tulsa Surgical Arts in Tulsa, OK, Dr. Angelo Cuzalina can help patients achieve a more youthful-looking or symmetrical complexion with temporal implants. Please call us to learn more and schedule an appointment.
Are Temple Implants For You?
This treatment works well for patients with hollow temples. Caused for a variety of reasons, such as aging, weight loss, or a birth defect, temple implants can improve the contours of the face. By adding volume to your temples with a soft, silicone implant, these slight changes can make a big difference in your overall appearance. During your consultation, we will discuss your cosmetic goals, assess your condition, and design a treatment plan that aligns with your needs. If you have any questions about the procedure, please let Dr. Cuzalina know. He is happy to take the time you need and listen to your questions.
At the beginning of your appointment, Dr. Cuzalina will administer anesthesia or IV sedation so you remain comfortable throughout the treatment. Next, he will create a small incision near the hairline or behind the ear, which helps conceal the scar. After creating the incision, Dr. Cuzalina places the small silicone implants near the temporal muscles. The implants are inserted deep enough so you cannot feel or see them. Your incisions are closed with dissolvable sutures, and we will take you back to the recovery room.
What To Expect
Once we have completed the procedure and carefully monitored you for a little bit, you can return home to recover. We recommend having a responsible adult drive you home. For the first 2 – 3 days, you will experience some bruising and swelling. However, these symptoms should naturally subside on their own. Because the implant is placed near the muscle, the healing time is a little faster. Typically, patients can resume their normal activities within 2 – 3 days. To ensure proper healing, we provide detailed aftercare instructions before you head home to recover.
"Dr. Cuzalina and his entire staff have been so incredible to me. I wish I could give more than just 5 stars. I’ve lost 135 pounds and they did my tummy tuck! Not only this, but they did it completely free to me after applying for Dr. Cuzalina’s complimentary surgery. Never once did I feel as if I was treated any differently than patients who paid. Each member of the staff was so incredibly kind, caring, and made sure to let me know they were there for me! They gave me their personal cell phone numbers to be able to access them outside of regular office hours if I had any issues. My stomach has never been flat my entire 23 years of life, and now it is thanks to Tulsa Surgical Arts! Down the line I hope to get skin removal on my arms and thighs as well, and I know without a shadow of a doubt I will be returning to their office when I can afford it. Thank you all so very much for changing my life. Words can’t describe how grateful I am for all of you."- S.H. / Google / Oct 20, 2020
