Will My Face Return To Normal If A Medpor Implant Is Removed?

Q: Dr. Eppley, When you have a Medpor implant and remove it after 5 years, will the face come back the same as when you didn’t have it?

A: That would depend on many factors such as facial implant location and size and style of the implant. But as a general statement it is not likely to return to exactly the way it was before the implants were placed as the tissues have been elevated off of the bone and stretched out. It is more a question of how closely will it get to the pre-implant shape but a complete return is to likely.
