Issue With Facial Implant

I have had cheek implants for about 17 years. I recently developed an infection of my cheek on one side. Is there a procedure that could salvage the implant? If so, I would like to have a consult with a doctor who does this. I live in Lake Worth, FL, and need a doctor who specializes in dealing with complications of facial implants. Thank you.

If the infection directly involves the implant it usually requires removal.  There are exceptions to this but the most critical step is evaluation whether the infection does involve the implant and if there is any fluid around it.
