Question Uneven Cheeks

Hi,

I recently underwent a few procedures but I am noticing some differences between my cheek implants. I am ten days post op and the left side of my face was considerably more swollen during the healing process. Now however, I am noticing the right side implant looks and feels great while the left is about twice the size, and painful to the touch and any facial movement.

My question is, is this normal during healing and will the left side catch up (shrink proportionally) to the right?

Swelling post-op is very normal. Posting profile pics (each side) as well as a frontal picture will help the forum members assess your situation.

Ten days out on cheek implants is too soon to tell anything really. Have you asked your surgeon his thoughts?
