I had dermalive placed in my nasolabial folds 10 years ago. Now they have formed large granulomas in my nasolabial folds. i would like to have them removed. Is there high risk with this procedure. It's creating facial distortion.

If the granulomas are large, they can be removed from the subcutaneous tissue. I have seen many patients with granulomas and have found success in removing the lesions. Raffy Karamanoukian, Los Angeles
