I had my chin injected with permanent liquid silicone, can Cortisone Kenalog injection help reshape? (photos)

Hi I had my chin injected with permanent liquid silicone about 3 years ago and don't like how it looks when I smile, my chin looks sharp....Can cortisone kenalog injection help reshape or perhaps melt down the silicone a little bit? I went to see a doctor in Beverly hill and he told me that he would inject cortisone to shave it down a little bit, but is it really gonna work?

We have experience with silicone complications. I would suggest IIT Kenalog to reduce the inflammation around the silicone. It will not dissolve the silicone itself.

I suggest a formal consultation you may need surgery to improve this. If there is inflammation 5fu/steroids may help.  Best, Dr. Emer.
