complications of facial implants
Oct 1, 2001

Dear Doctor,

About 10 days ago I had been treated for facial wasting by submallar implants. Post-operative I had little problems. My look has really improved only the numbness(&tightness) in my upper-lip is a great annoyance. Also my pronounciation is affected by it. Do you have any idea how long this will last ? Also persons who had facial implant surgery, would you please post your experiences. Your reaction will be greatly appreciated. Thanks a lot.

Response from Dr. Fisher

I don't know how long this will last. You should ask the Doc who did the procedure! However most early side effects from any kind of surgical procedures will go away eventually.I welcome any comments from anybody who has been through this. AF

Humic Extracts-I will ask again
