Biopolymers (liquid silicone) are possible to remove only in a surgical way because they connect and go through the surrounding tissue. Biopolymer is not a natural substance, and it is not biodegradable either. It is not possible to remove it completely, but we can reduce the volume of the lips and remove the balls, knots, and thickness.

The reason for the removal of biopolymer may be aesthetic because of the deformation and the migration of the biopolymer itself, unnatural hardness of the lips, asymmetry, and appearance of the balls (granulomas) and knots. Another reason can be medical because biopolymers can cause swelling, pain, inflammatory process, infection, oozing of silicone substance, and even dying out of the tissue (necrosis).


What is the preparation for removing the biopolymers from the lips?

Before the surgery of removing biopolymers from the lips, it is essential to go through a thorough exam by a specialist in plastic, cosmetic, and reconstructive surgery. It is necessary to do all the biochemical and other blood tests, which are done in our clinic and they are included in the price.

How is removing biopolymers from the lips done?

The surgery of removing the biopolymers from the lips is carried out under local anesthesia o short IV analgosedation. Based on the examination, the surgeon will determine what is the best place for the incision. It is usually made on the transition between the skin and mucous membrane so the scars are not visible. Through that incision, the scarred tissue, the excess of the lip skin, silicone balls, and deformed tissue are taken out. Chunk after chunk of silicone is removed. The suture is done with biodegradable thread (VICRYL). The thread usually dissolves on its own, but if some parts remain, the surgeon will remove them during one of the check-ups.

The surgery lasts 45 – 90 minutes.
