Will My Cheek Implants Get Infected If I Have Microblading to my Eyebrows?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I have 2 questions. 1). I have cheek implants in my face and am interested in having my eyebrows microbladed. Is it safe to have my eyebrows cut at the dermis level or do I risk infection? Should I take antibiotics before and after microblading procedure? 

2). I am interested in chin implant. What type of chin implant do you use, Silicone or Goretex? I am a male 30’s . Thank you

A: In answer to your cheek and chin implant questions:

1) There is no risk of infecting cheek implants by microblading of the eyebrows. Before and after procedure antibiotics are not necessary.

2) I use whatever material the patient prefers…if the dimensions needed for the chin augmentation exist or can be designed in the implant.
