Removal of silicone from the cheeks
Our office specializes in the removal and reconstruction of soft tissue related to the injection of liquid silicone. We have removed silicone from the face and body with outstanding success. This allows patients to resume their normal lives without the interference of the silicone inflammation. During your consultation, a careful examination of the soft tissue is required to determine whether the removal is safe. Not all patients are candidates for surgical removal.
Cheek silicone can be removed with surgical excision.

Dilute triamcinolone acetonide injections may help reduce the appearance of bumps after silicone injections.
Hope this helps, and I wish you well.
