Possible Complications Associated with Facial Implants
Possible complications associated with facial implants may include, but are not limited to, the following:
As with any operation, an infection can occur. If this happens, the patient is given antibiotics to clear up the infection. If the infection does not resolve, then the implant may have to be temporarily removed and replaced at a later time.
A facial implant could move slightly out of alignment, with a second operation becoming necessary to reposition it in its proper place.
