How Is Permanent Lip Filler Removal Done?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I was wondering if the doctor does permanent lip filler removal? I’ll also need another procedure to give them shape and volume again. 

A: Permanent lip filler, which are most commonly of silicone materials, have to be removed by an open procedure. Reshaping often involves changing the level/position of the vermilion border. The placement of solid fat grafts is usually what is done as the silicone material replacement since an open space has been created by the excision of the material.
