How Long Does It Take The Capsules From Cheek Implants To Be Resorbed Once They Are Removed?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I had cheek implant removed a year ago along with chin implant, wondering how long it takes for the implant capsule to fully go away or if it will fully go away, it was a silicon implant that was only in for 8 months. 

A: Facial implant capsules take 6 to 12 months to be completely absorbed.
