When is the earliest time you can take out cheek implants if you don’t like them

by Bellevue | Seattle’s Dr. Philip Young | Aesthetic Facial Plastic Surgery:

This is a question that a person was asking regarding taking out implants less than a month after they were put in.  These implants were placed by another surgeon.

There is really no period when you should wait or that is generally recommended or considered standard after a cheek implant.  What your surgeon is likely wanting you to do is to reassess your results.  The swelling should go down and you may like the results later.  That is probably the intent of your surgeons. So most doctors are going to want you to really make sure you want them out with the ultimate results that are going to become manifest for you. I think patience is important.  But you do have options.  There is no reason you can’t remove them asap.  I think the other doctors just want you to wait to really assess your results. You are always welcome to reach out to me for more advice or more questions. You can email us here Plastic Surgery
