Wait at least 2 months after cheek implant removal.
In New York City, we don't do cheek implants any more.
There is no hard and fast rule
I wouild probably wait 3 months to allow the tissue trauma to subside. That way, you should have no sign of bruising or discoloration, nor any tenderness from the surgery before you proceed with filler.
Restylane after removal of cheek implants
You may proceed with Restylane now. The implants would not be within the tissue where the implants formerly resided (against the bone). Post-operative swelling would be minimal by now. Why were the implants removed?
