Regards, 

Liquid silicone is unsafe, please do not use it ever. The autoimmune response could be triggered by this substance, if you look around on th Internet, you will find patients that have a lot of problems with this product. The use for lips and other areas is off label. The inical use is for retine problems.   

The biopolymer or liquid silicone has to be removed from the lips, it is obligatory for your safety.

Please remember to be aware, do not let any permanenrt filler to be injected into your face, breast, buttocks, calfs, genitalia, etc. The safest way to increase buttocks is through your own fat injections or through silicone implants.

I hope the information was usefull, have a nice day! Dr Carlos Alberto Ríos.

If you are unhappy please see an experienced physician to evaluate.  At this time you may need steroid/5fu injections to stop the inflammation and camln down the nodules.  This could be permanent if not treated immediately.  Surgery may be needed if not improved.  Best, Dr. Emer.
