Fillers - temple area - dangerous?

Is it dangerous to do fillers here due to close proximity to the eye or is the risk the same as injecting filler elsewhere

Temple filler injection

Hi and thanks for your question.

Volume restoration of temple with fillers has a very good result but should be done by an expert physician. This procedure is generally very safe with minimal side effects like redness or bruise. Dangerous complications like blindness are extremely rare

Expertise important

I perform filler injections in the temples regularly. It is safe if the doctor is skilled and knows the facial anatomy well.
