Male and Female Temple Implant Surgery in Houston, TX
What Are Temple Implants?
Sometimes an individual’s facial features look a little off, and it may be due to some subtle issue such as the shape of the person’s face. Facial enhancements such as temporal implants or temporal augmentation can restore symmetry and balance to a person’s facial appearance by correcting the shape of the face.
Temporal implants are used to add volume and width at the temples to create a more oval facial shape, producing a younger-looking and more balanced facial appearance.
In Houston and nearby areas, temporal implants are available at Glamour Plastic Surgery and Med Spa, a state-of-the-art cosmetic surgery facility led by one of Houston’s most respected and trusted plastic surgeons, Dr. Olga Bachilo.
Who Should Consider Temporal Implants?
Temporal implants may be ideal for healthy adult individuals who want to restructure the shape of their face to widen the upper portion in order to achieve a more harmonious proportion among their facial features.
In cases where patients’ faces have been altered by previous injury or surgery, a reconstructive procedure with temporal implants may be performed.
Recovery and Downtime After Temporal Implant Surgery
Typically, patients are able to return to work after about a week following the temporal augmentation procedure. Any discomfort resulting from the procedure may be alleviated with over the counter pain medications and ice packs.
When Will I See My Results?
There may be swelling at the site for several weeks, and the full results of the procedure may not be totally visible until the swelling has completely subsided, usually after a period of three to four months.

Will Temporal Augmentation reduce the appearance of wrinkles?
In some cases, because temporal augmentation will produce a slight lift at the temples, the procedure may help to reduce the appearance of some of the wrinkles around the eyes, such as crow’s feet and laugh lines. However, to more fully eradicate these lines and wrinkles, temporal implants may be combined with additional treatments, such as injectable dermal fillers, to provide a more comprehensive makeover and directly address the lines and wrinkles.
Can Temporal Implants be combined with other facial procedures?
Yes, temporal implants may be inserted as part of a total facial transformation in which other procedures, such as cheek or chin implants, rhinoplasty, eyelid surgery, or other facial surgeries are performed in the same session, in order to produce a truly comprehensive makeover of the facial appearance.
Is there scarring after the temple implant surgery?
Because temporal implants are inserted and positioned into place by means of a miniscule incision just above the temporal muscle, in the slightly recessed area on either side of the forehead, it is very easy to camouflage the incisions in the patient’s hairline. This means that the tiny scars produced by the procedure will be barely noticeable.
