I have very large cheek bones and hollow temples. I look like I have cheek implants even though I don’t! Is ther eany way to shave down the cheek bones so they are not as wide?Wednesday, June 13th, 2012
It would be extremely unsafe to shave down your cheek bones so your face is less wide. There are many crucial nerves that would be in danger in that area. If you have hollow temples the safest thing would be to fill in your temples. This will bring your cheeks into greater balance and your cheeks will not appear to be as wide.
The easiest way to add volume to the temples is with filler. Juvederm can be used to fill the temples in quickly and easily with minimal downtime or bruising. Sculptra can also be used in the temple but tends to take months and months to show a noticeable difference. Fat injections can also be used in the temples but are only cost effective if a large amount of volume is needed for the entire face.
