Silicone removal from my butt. Any suggestions?
10 months ago
I had silicone injections 2 years ago in my butt. This were not done by a licensed doctor. About a week ago i noticed 3 painful lumps on my butt cheeks. Also around the same time I started feeling sick. I don't know if they are related but am very concerned now. I had been running a fever and haven't been able to eat without vomiting. I also experienced a bad headache. I really don't know if everything is related. can I have the silicone removed from my butt. or what treatment options do I have.

I would defer to an expert for the removal of the silicone. Our office specializes in Hidef Removal of silicone at all stages of tissue reaction, Grade I to IV.Best, Dr. KaramanoukianLos Angeles
Silicone has to be removed surgically. If it is causing inflammation, antbioitics and steroid/5FU injections can be used to calm it down. Best, Dr. Emer.
