Will Working Out After Getting Facial Implants Make My Bones Get Bigger and Then The Implants Won’t Fit?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I have a question about working out after getting implants. I’m 19 years old and if my bones were to get become bigger either from growing up to age 25 or working out then would the implants become smaller and cause problems? For example I got forehead implants and nasal implants my actual facial bone structure were to get bigger. Could the implants be designed to not become small if facial bones grow and become bigger or something like that? Thank you!

A: At age 19 your bones are not going to grow further to any significant degree nor will working out make them get any bigger either. Thus the concerns about any facial implant becoming too small later because of growth around is not a concern.
