Persistent Swelling after revision of Cheek Augmentation
Hi Laura,It is unfortunate you continue to experience persistent swelling for all these years. Are you swollen equally on both sides? In addition to a thorough examination have you had any imaging studies performed? Are your implants still in place and what type of implant was used? Have you ever been treated with antibiotics or cultures sent to rule out infection. There can be several reasons for this swelling - from chronic infection to implant related inflammation. With a complete understanding of the time course and treatment you have had a possible solution can be made.
