Can Cheek Implants Cause One Sided Facial Swelling and Head Tremors?

I had cheek implants in 2007. My right cheek has swollen significantly on three different occasions and I am having head tremors every day. I noticed the first tremor the second time it swelled. I have been to two different doctors who put me on antibiotics and prednisone. Have there been any cases where cheek implants have caused head tremors?

Tremors following cheek implants

It is unlikely that cheek implants would cause tremors, but with the association with swelling, there may be a connection. Get an ultra-sound or MRI so see whether there id fluid behind the implant. It is very unusual to have this infection recurring.
