Patient :Hello doctor , i just had a question about my cheek that never fully healed from an accident when i was younger , basically i had a seasaw accident where i wacked my cheek off of it and it swelled up huge , after all these years i guess the swelling went down but i think their might still be fluids in my cheek ? It is still very big compared to my other cheek , it affects my smile as to where i can not fully smile , it looks like a half smile because i can not scretch my lips/cheek that far back. It also makes my eye look somewhat lazy when i smile because of how far up my cheek goes . I just wanted to know what is in there and how to get it removed ?
