I am trying to find a doctor who has surgically removed Artfill because I have a lump in my tear trough area from the product (.40cc under each eye). My oculoplastic surgeon is willing to remove it, but needs to know what to expect, i.e. consistency, technique, etc.
Is it Possible to Surgically Removed Artfill? (photo)

Use a transconjuctival approach
Its best to try non surgical approaches like Kenalog injections first. If all else has failed, I would approach via a transconjunctival (inside your lower eyelid) incision to minimize scarring and skin damage.
