Although facial implants have been popular for 50 years, temple implants are newer to the scene. These soft silicone implants are designed to fill in the temporal hollow that occurs in many patients as they age. This area has traditionally been treated with injectable filler but it can take a large amount of filler to treat the area. Temple implants are a single 30-minute treatment that are permanent, but can be easily changed or removed if desired.
