Cheek Implant - Infection or Not?
Dear doctors, I had cheek implants and buccal fat removal on 4th april 2011. The swellings on the lower cheeks are almost completely gone. Nevertheless I am still slightly swollen alongside the nose just where the nasolabial folds are located. 3 weeks after surgery I had this foul drainage inside my mouth for 3 days which are gone now. For 1 week I took Keflex and now I am on clindamycin since a week. My surgeon was kind of helpless as I have no typical symptoms of infection.What do you think?
Cheek implant infections are uncommon
Foul taste in mouth is most likely infection near cheek implants
