Augmentation of a depressed temple can help to soften the harsh look of oversized cheek bones that make the area above them appear relatively hollow.
Various commercial dermal fillers can be injected into the area of depression, but longevity is short and so their use is not really practical.
Liposuctioned fat transfer by injection has also been used, but resorption is common.
Tissue clay (Avitene ®), a novel filler, seems to have better staying power but doesn't feel very natural.
Acelluar processed cadaver dermis (Alloderm ®) is commercially available. Appropriately cut strips can be stacked to achieve necessary thickness and implanted through an incision hidden in the scalp. Eventual resorption may be partial or complete.
Bone grafts or customized silicone implants can be placed in advanced cases or when other less invasive methods have failed to produce acceptable or long lasting results.
