Will Removing My Lip Implants Get Rid of The Tight Scar Tissue?

Q: Dr. Eppley, Hello – I have Permalip implants along with some really tight scar tissue, so I was thinking of having them removed. Will removal eliminate the scar tissue? Or is the tissue not stuck to the implants since the implants are smooth?

A: Removal of your lip implants will not completely eliminate the scar tissue. The surrounding capsule of the implants will be left behind…which will shrink down over time but probably never 100% go away.
