Since you are on real self I would suggest looking in to some of the doctors listed in South Carolina. Most Plastic Surgeons and certainly facial Plastic surgeons have experience in removing these types of implants. Personally I do not use this type of implant and never did. My experience from seeing other surgeons patients is that there is a fair amount of patient dissatisfaction with these implants and they are harder to remove then other types. If you do not find anyone of real self then I would suggest asking around town for a referral and seeing several consultations until you find someone extremely comfortable with the removal procedure. Best regards!
