If you’ve noticed that the area around your temples appears sunken, it might not be your imagination. This area, like the area around your upper cheeks, is prone to fat loss with the passing years. When fat is lost in this area, the bony structure of the eye sockets may be more apparent and the skin of the upper face may hang or sag more loosely.
Injectable fillers are ideal for restoring volume to this part of the face, lifting sagging skin and rejuvenating your appearance. Although results from filling the temporal area are immediate and can be long lasting, they are not permanent and must be maintained. The procedure is simple, quick and with the addition of numbing cream or an injected numbing medication, relatively free of discomfort. As with any injectable procedure, redness at the injection site, bruising, or swelling are possible but these effects are usually mild and temporary.
For patients who desire a more permanent solution, fat transfer surgery may be a preferable option. Using this revolutionary procedure, Dr. Siporin removes some of your own body fat, typically using liposuction, prepares it, and injects it into areas of the face where more volume is desired. Since the procedure uses your own body fat, rejection is unlikely and the results are supple, natural looking and natural feeling.
