42 years old. for correctin sagging on my jaw sides and a little turkey neck. that helped 70%. looks good but concern about future complications.

40 days ago had the surgery. 2 weeks after that i had swelling and infecting with lots of puss coming out of my corner of my gum. I was put on antibiotic for 10 days seemed ok but after 4 days started having small infection and swelling again dr. put me on antibiotic imediately again. now I see a little swelling, and stiff. no fever no red ness during all this time.

should I keep or remove the implant?

Hi Zahara,

I'm sorry for all you've been through with the implant! You may also want to post your question on our Doctor Q&A Forum for expert opinions. How long has it been since the last infection cleared?
