I currently have silicone granulomas that resulted from Silicone injections to the legs 15 years ago. Many doctors told me that the only solution for siliconoma is to surgically remove all the affected zone without the possibility of having a reconstructive plastic surgery. Is this true? Thanks.
Reconstructive Surgery Impossible After Siliconoma Removal?
Doctor Answers (1)
Removing free silicone injections that have resulted in granulomas or very firm areas is very difficult. It is impossible to tell you what possible options for reconstruction are available to you without formally examining you.
