Removal of silicone from the lips
The procedure for removing silicone from the lips is very delicate but guarantees optimal results. It involves removing the silicone, now illegal but commonly used in the past as a non-reabsorbable filler. Silicone guarantees good results but forms granules in time and shifts in position. The formation of granules is a frequent source of infection. Recovery time is very fast; after a week at most, the patient will show no remaining adverse affects. The procedure and postoperative phase are completely painfree. After this kind of procedure, it is possible to increase the volume of the lips with a re-absorbable filler.
