Wrong Fixation of Cheek Implants?
I Had my Malar Implants Removed and Replaced with New Smaller Cheek Implants 3 Months Ago. The old implants were placed too high on my malar bone. My surgeon replaced them with midfacial implants. Therefor he did a new pocket below the old one. He was scared the new implants could shift back to old pocket position, so he decided to close the old pocket with dissolving stitches ABOVE my face. I still can see the stitch line. Now this causes facial mimic problems. When I laugh my cheeks are just able to move until this line! It looks awful. Can he remove the stitches or is it permanent?
