How can I remove Aquamid?

I had a very bad infection after I had Aquamid in my cheeks, but now it seems better; the only thing is, it is very firm, almost like a stone. How can I break it down? The Aquamid company says not to use steroids because it can get worse, just the antibiotics, but it doesn't work. How and where can I get Aquamid removed from my cheeks? Please, I need answers.

Hi Joanna,
I have had Aquamid injected in 2003 but it was injected in the outer layers of the skin, as time went by my skin started to peel badly and now a few lumps are so obvious that I would go to great length to have it removed. Naturally I wish for as little scarring as possible, so if you or any other, can recomend a doctor who can remove it I would like to hear about it. It is by far the worst decision I have made in my life having aquamid injected into my cheeks, I hope there is options to remove it as I now know, despite what the doctor told me, that it will not dissapear after 10 years.
I hope to hear from you. Kind regards
Rudi

Hi Joanna its good to see you are looking better and feeling good about yourself.You are an attractive person,I did not reply to say that but wanted to ask you on the removal of aquamid.I want to remove some on my right cheek.How is it done.Regards.Nick
Well i had no choice because of the infection so i had surgery to try to remove as much as they could otherwise i would not have it removed...I have a little scar in my cheek but in the future i will fix it :)
Hi Joanna.Whe you say yo had aquamid removed how was it done? Was it a cut and then aquamid came out? Im confused because no doctor seems to know how to remove some on one of my cheeks.I really hope you answer me on this one because your experience can help me alot.Regards.Nick
