Time for scar tissue to form around facial implant
It takes several weeks for the scar tissue envelop to form around a silastic implant whether it is in the cheek or the chin. The cheek and chin implants can be removed at any time after the surgery if the patient chooses. The scar tissue, although present will diminish significantly and the cheek or chin area returns to the normal preoperative state without any augmentation.
