Can silikon 1000 be removed from nose and lips?

Doctor Answers 1

Silikon-1000 may not be removed from your nose, but lip reduction surgery may be considered if your lips are overcorrected.

Microdroplet silicone nasal injections are typically placed in the nasal SMAS (superficial musculoaponerotic system), which is the soft tissue layer between the skin and underlying nasal framework. When injected in the nose, silicone may be irremovable, depending on your examination.

If you feel your lips are too large after silicone injections, lip reduction surgery may be considered. This involves a scar on the inside of your lips after removal of both silicone and its dense attachment to the lip tissue. 

If you have a lip bump, or a local area of nasal swelling, dilute triamcinolone acetonide (steroid) injections may be considered. Hope this helps. Dr Joseph
