I had 4mm terino silicone shells and 4mm silicone premaxillary implants placed on sep 2nd and removed on sep 28. What sort of healing process should I expect? How long until the swelling resolves and I look acceptable? And how long until I am back to my true pre op look?
Cheek Implants Placed and Removed One Month Later, How Long Will the Recovery Take?

Recovery after cheek implant removal
Implants placed and removed within a short period of time should not cause too much delay in recovery as the implant did not have a chance to get a capsule formation around it. Providing there was no infection bruising should settle after 7-10 days. Swelling should subside after about 2 weeks. Uncomplicated wound should heal at the same time, though suture resorption might take about 4 weeks.
