Temple fillers are a growing non-surgical, dermal filler injection treatment. They address hollowing of the temples that can occur for various reasons such as aging, weight loss, and athleticism. However, temple fillers can also have other cosmetic benefits that patients with only minor temple hollowing seek out, such as creating a more heart-shaped face. Let’s look at a question related to one of these cosmetic benefits, “Do temple fillers lift the eyes?”
Yes, temple fillers can lift the eyes. First, natural volume loss in the face due to aging or other causes can cause the corners of the eyes to point downward. Many people are bothered by this. Temple filler helps restore this volume and lift the eye back into its natural position.
Even in younger patients, temple filler can help lift the eye. Most commonly, this is used to create the “cat eye” effect for younger patients which is a highly coveted look. The subtle lifting helps reshape the eye into the effect that the patient desires without major surgery.
