I have Advanta lip implants is it possible to get them removed?

I had these lip implants done about 4 years ago, I loved the result but still wanted to go bigger so I had a permanent filler put on top of them. Now, i'd prefer my lips to be smaller. I know I cant remove the filler but can i remove the implants ?

Remove advanta implants

  1. Yes, Advanta implants are made of Goretex.
  2. They can be removed.
  3. But if you had filler on top of implants, wouldn't it be easier to let the filler absorb? 
  4. Or if it is hyaluronic acid filler, it can be dissolved with Vitrase.
