I will indeed. When I see him in 7 weeks, I will let him know the cortisone shot did not help and I will be firm that it needs to be corrected in a polite but stirn manner. Thank you so much for your responses. I will keep you updated in a couple weeks.

Now my implant is beginning to hurt and cause me some pain. I'm going to go back in for another visit, they told me to wait 8 weeks for the cortisone shot to take 'full effect' but its not doing anything, and now when I yawn it hurts. There's diff. something wrong, I'm interested in seeing what he says, but I know it needs to be revised. I'll keep this updated.

Yes, Mike, the cortisone is definitely not the answer.

Please keep us posted and good luck!

Hey everyone, just a quick update!

My PS wants me to wait another month and try another cortisone shot before we proceed forward with the revision and I'm getting the impression that I will have to shed out more money to pay for the revision even though I should not have to.

I had a question maybe someone can shed some light into this for me. I was just thinking about having both cheek implants removed completely, but I'm worried how my face will permanently feel a month after? Since there was a 'flesh pocket' created where the implants were, will my face feel like a empty gap? Or how will it feel once the implants are gone? I'm really starting to think about just taking them out completely, maybe it's just not for me.
