In brief: Always risks w surge

Implants in the cheek are permanent (with the exception of fat and fillers).
Implants such as silicone or goretex are frequently asymmetric, can become infected and have so-so patient satisfaction. Injectables are typically temporary but allow more precision with symmetry and no surgical risk.
