One way to remove some of the Aquamid without direct excision, it with a very fine cannula the surgeon can aspirate the Aquamid, this leaves a minimal scar and it is effective.

Because aquamid is a permanent/semi permanent filler, the only way to assure removal is by direct excision of the material.  Best of Luck...RAS
