Creating a rounder buttocks or fuller breasts can add that extra boost of confidence you’ve been looking for. Some patients have undergone silicone injection in order to achieve the results they are looking for. Unfortunately, with many silicone injections the results are not what patient had hoped for. The silicone may not settle how they would have like. Silicone injections can also lead to discomfort, pain, and in some cases dangerous complications. Injectable silicone used for body contouring is not an FDA approved treatment and should be avoided. For those patients who have undergone silicone injections in the past, silicone injection removal may be an option. Here at the South Florida Center for Cosmetic Surgery, our board certified plastic surgeons are experienced at procedures to help correct and remedy complications from silicone injections to help you look and feel your best.
Silicone Injection Removal can be successfully achieved using specifically-targeted liposuction to eradicate the unwanted silicone injected in a previous procedure(s). Here at the South Florida Center for Cosmetic Surgery, we use traditional liposuction to target the silicone, or we use VASER liposuction which uses the vibration amplification of sound energy at resonance (or VASER) separating the silicone from the tissue in the unwanted areas in more delicate areas, or to achieve different results based on what specifically needs to be achieved.
As always, as with any procedure, please contact us for a consultation with one of our top, board-certified plastic surgeons. If you have further questions pertaining to any lift or augmentation procedure that may be performed after the silicone removal procedure, potential results and options may also be discussed during this consultation.

The initial consultation for Silicone Injection Removal is extremely important as it will be determine your candidacy based off your previous procedure(s), the areas in which you would like to have the procedure done, the size and state of your silicone injections, any and all symptoms of pain and discomfort you may be feeling, as well as your medical history. Please expect to provide any and all relevant information including on the previous including a list of all current medications, allergies, and any details of any previous surgeries. After your extensive consultation and approval by your surgeon, you will undergo a physical exam, including blood tests before photographs will be taken by our highly-trained staff to help plan your Silicone Injection Removal procedure. Before your procedure you will be given important instructions on how to prepare, including cautions about taking certain medications, alcohol, and food consumption. Specific care instructions for hygiene leading to your procedure will also be given.
Prior to the procedure, general anesthesia will be administered by a board-certified anesthesiologist. Depending on the area(s) of the intended removal, your surgeon will then make minimal small, strategically placed incisions to insert the closed system cannulas, which are small tubes used to remove, via suction, the undesired silicone. This will be accomplished using either of the removal techniques as consulted upon by your surgeon:
At the completion of this extremely specified and technically-removed process, the surgeon will suture the skin at the incision points back together, then apply a bandage or surgical garment for healing and sterilization.
The total time of this process varies based off the silicone injections, amount, area being removed from, and your surgeon will consult you on the time this procedure will take.
Recovery time varies based off the location of the Silicone Injection Removal, amount of removal, and the extent of the previous side effects of the silicone, as well as which liposuction technique was administered.
Most patients need at least one to two weeks of recovery time depending on the area of the procedure. Some initial swelling and bruising can occur for 1-4 weeks, after natural settling of the surrounding tissue, results will be seen beginning at two weeks and may develop throughout the first year following the procedure.
After the initial two weeks of recovery time try to avoid strenuous activity to the area of the procedure for six weeks. Follow-up office visits occur 1-day post-operation, then 1 week and 1 month after the procedure. Any further appointment would be advised by your surgeon.

Liposuction procedures are generally done using a saline solution flush into the designated area and then a vacuum suction that removes the silicone injections from the tissue. The Vaser process uses ultrasound waves that reverberate at high speeds to break the injections from their connection to the tissue. This process can allow a gentler removal of the silicone than traditional liposuction. Please, as always contact us to discuss which option is best for you.
Any silicone that is removed is permanently removed.
Following full recovery after your Silicone Injection Removal surgery, you may have a consultation with our top-tier surgeons regarding what goals you have.
