Removal of polyacrylamide can be difficult, it depend on how it was injected. An MRI may show if it has encapsulated in one pocket or is it diffuse throughout the tissue.
If it is in a pocket with a capsule around it it can be removed. If it is diffuse in the tissue then it would be difficult to remove completely.
