Aquamid "Overfill"


Because aquamid is a permanent/semi permanent filler, the only way to assure removal is by direct excision of the material.  Best of Luck...RAS

Aquamid Removal

One way to remove some of the Aquamid without direct excision, it with a very fine cannula the surgeon can aspirate the Aquamid, this leaves a minimal scar and it is effective.
