I was very annoyed with the nasolabial fold. Was told by the doctor that cheek implants will bring the fold up. Had cheek implants in addition to the upper eyelids and nose job.
Two weeks post-op the left cheek is more swollen and there is numbness and left lip appears to be a little lower (dropped) then the right. Questioned the surgeon. Was told that he visualized the nerve and is positive that he did not cut it. What is the time frame for the sensitivity and functionality to recover? When should I consider the removal of the implants? Will the sensation come back after the removal of the implants?
Consider filler first. The effect is temporary but there is no risk of nerve damage/even temporary dysfunction is very scary...
