Temporal Implants

  • Heredity
  • Normal aging process
  • Previous surgeries
  • Excessive weight loss
  • HIV medication lipoatrophy (fat loss)

Facial volume loss is accompanied by the loss of blood vessels, fat layers and collagen causing the skin to sink in from the lack of these natural supports.

Treatments for facial volume loss:
  • Fillers (injectables)
  • Fat transfer
  • Implants
Augmentation with injectables is an effective method, but repeated treatments are often needed for maintenance which could be costly.  Fat transfer can also be unpredictable and repeated treatments may be necessary.

The Temporal Shell Implant
  • Made of ultrasoft, pliable silicone
  • Designed to augment the hollowed areas of excessively concave or sunken temples
  • A soft-tissue implant
  • The Standard version’s shape matches the typical skeletal borders of the temporal region
  • Shaped for ideal blending with no palpable margins
Benefits include:
  • Permanent solution for temporal hollowing
  • Very soft silicone for flexibility
  • Provides predictable volume and symmetry
  • Mimics soft tissue, unlike bony augmentation
  • Tapered edges for no palpable margins
  • Outpatient procedure with intravenous sedation

Accurate Fit

In certain cases, for augmentation or treatment of deformities, a jaw or facial CT scan is obtained to form the implant for an accurate fit.  

3D Accuscan Patient-Specific® implants (Implantech company) result in an exact fit. 

This powerful technology faithfully reproduces a precise, three-dimensional skeletal model from the patient’s CT scan, including the bony defect requiring reconstruction.
