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.

Surgical Technique

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.
