Doctor recommendation for removal of silicone/hydrogel injections to my hips.
I had silicone/hydrogel injections to my hips in 2013 and since then it has migrated to my thighs, groin area, close to my knee and to my inguinal. Is there anyone there who can help me with the removal of this material and also is there a way for me to regain my lymphatic system since it seems to have been clogged up by the material. Thanks.

Our office specializes in silicone removal from the buttocks and hips. Most cases involve liquid silicone and surgical removal is recommended to avoid tissue damage from inflammation.
