Restoring Volume To The Temples With Innovative Implants

As time progresses, our faces naturally undergo changes, one of which is the loss of volume in specific areas, particularly the temples. This loss can lead to a noticeable hollowing effect, altering the youthful contours of the face. At Ambay Plastic Surgery, we recognize the importance of addressing these changes to maintain facial harmony. Our approach with temple implants specifically targets the hollowed temple areas, effectively restoring volume and rejuvenating the overall appearance of the face.

Who is the Ideal Candidate for Temporal Implants?

After performing hundreds of temporal implants at Ambay Plastic Surgery, we’ve found there are several groups that the majority of our patients fall into. The most common concerns, and those we find particularly benefit from Dr. Ambay’s temple implants:

The Deflated Face Patient

Aging, genetics and other factors can lead to a deflated facial appearance. This is typically characterized by a hollowed-out appearance of the temples, flattened cheekbones or a receding chin. Temporal implants can restore volume, offering a rejuvenated and youthful look.

The Filler Fatigue Patient

These patients have been consistently injected with fillers to address facial volume loss and are now seeking a more permanent solution. Instead of frequent filler injections to correct hollow temples, an easy to place temple implant can be a lasting solution that requires minimal maintenance.

The Asymmetry Correction Seeker

Symmetry of the face is what gives a beautiful, cohesive appearance. For those struggling with hollow temples, it can leave the face looking and feeling unbalanced. Temporal implants can provide the necessary augmentation to achieve an overall harmonious facial profile.

Why Choose Temporal Implants?

Temporal implants are specifically designed to address hollowing in the temples of the face. If you’ve been relying on fillers and wish to transition to a more lasting solution, these implants are tailor-made for you. Benefits of temporal implants:

  • The procedure involves almost imperceptible incisions placed discreetly within the hairline, ensuring no visible scars post-surgery.
  • The implant material is soft and is placed underneath the skin, offering a natural feel and look.
  • One of the standout features of implants for the temples is their semi-permanence. You have the flexibility to retain them for a lifetime or opt for removal if you change your mind later.
  • Temporal implants are perfect for enhancing the temple region. The incision, strategically placed in the hairline, allows the implant to slip into a natural pocket, addressing the temporal hollowness effectively.

Safety, Efficiency and Quick Recovery

At Ambay Plastic Surgery, patient safety and satisfaction are paramount. The procedure is performed at our outpatient surgery center (located within the same building as the clinic), ensuring you can return home the same day. With immediate results and a recovery period spanning just a few days, you can quickly resume your daily activities, flaunting a refreshed and youthful appearance.
