Will An Electric Razor or Electric Toothbrush Disturb The Screws In My Facial Implants?
Q: Dr. Eppley, do you think that there is a significant chance that the vibration from an electric razor, an electric hair clipper, or an electric toothbrush could dislodge the screws that are holding my facial implants in place? If you thought that the vibration might slowly unscrew them over time or cause any other damage, I could just avoid using them.
Thank you, respectfully and humbly, for any thoughts you have.
A: There would be zero chance that any external vibratory stimuli could ever cause a screw to become loose in any of your facial implants. They are much more rigidly in place than any external stimuli could ever displace them. You should continue to use any electrical facial device that you want without restrictions.
