Are there any fillers that can be injected soon after having cheek implants inserted and removed within one month's time?

Q:

I had cheek implants inserted October 2012 and removed November 2012. One was infected and the other misplaced.  Is it OK to have fillers injected now or should I wait?  My face looks bad because I had a fat transfer below the cheek implants. Now my cheeks are flat and fuller around the nasolabial folds?  Are there any volume fillers I can inject this soon?

A:

With a resent history of infection and the subsequent scaring that will occur, it would be best if you waited at least until February (3 to 4 months) before having any fillers placed in your face. Sorry to hear about your adverse event.

Best,

Gary R Culbertson, MD, FACS
