Would laser injections help to disintegrate and remove lumps of silicone?

I have been told that there are laser injections able to liquefy and disperse lumps of silicone injected in parts of our bodies. Has anyone ever heard of them? Thank you.

There is no such injections that can "reverse" silicone as it is permanent.  5FU/steroid injections with radiofrequency treatments help if the area is inflammed or hard.  I suggest seeing an expert. Best. Dr. Emer

Our office specializes in the removal of silicone fillers. I would assess your candidacy for surgical removal based on your Karamanoukian severity scale for soft tissue reaction.
