Default can you still perform intense physical activities after having an implant?

didn't really know which subforum to ask this on, so i just chose this one. let's say for someone who plays sports, basketball in particular.. running back and forth, jumping up and down, and the occasional accidental hit to the face. would it be safe still? would the implant come loose or fall off or whatever?

Specifically what type of implant(s) are you talking about? That way we can put this post in the appropriate part of the forum.

Once everything is healed you should be fine. Getting a softball to the face with or without facial implants is not a good idea. Running and jumping once everything is healed and/or screwed in and in place should not be an issue.

There's always a possibility an implant could be dis-lodged, depending how well (or not) the surgeon attaches them. I know cheek implants are rarely screwed into place anymore, so I would imagine that could pose a greater risk.

But as we said before, implants are not what you should be considering at this time

Don't do intense physical activities after surgery because your face will swell up. Wait 3+ months.

Your face will not swell up if you play sports or do intense physical activities, littleturtle. Just take it easy. Like I said, even without any facial implants sometimes injuries can not be avoided, so with implnats once must be super careful. As la_angel stated above, your implant could become dislodged.

And like she said as well ... you should not be thinking about getting facial implants!!!

hahah you remembered..

well since the last time, a lot of things has happened:
- my depression really went to an all time low a week and half ago
- i couldn't stand people staring, laughing, talking behind my back anymore..
- i dropped out of college =(.. with 3-4 weeks to go too lol..
- getting some good support from a few friends too.. that was a hard move on my part but a necessary one. i was feeling so low one day, i just had to talk to someone and finally let a couple of friends know about what i was going through. it's funny.. they actually noticed
- going on a quest to improve myself with my parents' full support.. they understand me

also: it's a known fact that there is something wrong with my face, and it's not JUST a minor thing. i've had friends' parents give me that strange look the first time meeting me. it's really my left side mostly. my cheeks are very uneven. the biggest problem is my jaw though. my left jaw is much weaker than my right, especially the jaw angle. lol my head's uneven too, but i can't really do much about that so i'm not even gonna bother.. life really screwed me over..

- the greatest thing about being ugly (different)? you get the chance to see people for who they truly are..


update picture: my skin condition WAS a lot better a couple of weeks ago.. when i went into my depression mood, i went all lazy and just laid in bed all day listening to music. i stopped using the acne products, as a result i had a few show up. don't mind the oily face.. i have bio-oil on for scar treatment.

Sounds like you have had a lot going on.

Have you considered going to the dermatologist yet?

i will definitely see a dermatologist in the future, but not right now, and i'll be going mostly regarding these flesh-colored bumps i have on my nose i've had for years now.. they're like pimple scars from when i was like 15-16. i've been looking for treatments for these but i've never seen anybody post any actual proven treatment for them. anybody familiar?
