Silicone oil injections

Silicone oil injection are very dangerous and illegal.
The silicone oil incites a very intense inflammatory reaction and formation of granulomas, micro and macro oil cysts, and fibrosis. Not all silicone injected can be removed because it spreads massively. and can spread beyond the original site, in the breast to the lymph nodes of the axilla.
Surgical removal is the only way to remove the bulk of it.  In the breast a mammogram would define the extent of the silicone in the breast and the best surgical procedure.
