How Many Years After Silicone Injections Do The Effects of Granuloma Appear?

Silicone granulomas and silicone complications

Granulomas can occur at any point. The longterm complications of silicone injections are inevitable and for that reason, the off-label use of silicone microdroplets is not recommended.

Silicone injections

Unfortunately silicone injections are the gift that keep on giving.  Granulomas or other problems related to the injections can occur at any time.
