Aquamid, removal, fat transfer, FAMI
Bioalkamid can be removal with special needle and Luer Lok Syringe scar-less trough the naso labial fold.
The indentation or hollow resulting from the suction will be filled with SVF as I do with the FAMI procedure. With no over-correction, we achieve natural contours. Quote:
Often the permanent fillers can lead to granuloma formation after a short time or many years later. Can you feel anything - a nodule?? Before doing a surgery I would try some other things to see if you can decrease any inflammation there. Low dose steroid with some 5-FU can decrease any inflammation. And Ulthera can break up the fibrosis that can develop around the permanent filler. If these don't help then you can consider excision. After a surgery you will have some scar tissue so sometimes filler or fat may not create a perfect contour.
