Temporal Artery

Fat grafting is unlikely to adequately camouflage a prominent temporal artery. Temporal artery ligation is the only effective treatment for the very visible anterior branch of the superficial temporal artery.

Can you disguise a temporal artery with strategic fat grafting?

interesting question. I suppose you could do that,  but the question is how thin the temples are and where and when you would stop injecting fat. You also make a trade off between visibility of the vessel and the size of the temple. It ultimately depends on the precise configuration of your forehead. You need to be seen in person to be evaluated.
