Can biopolymer gel be removed from my lip?


Hello. I had biopolymer gel injected into my upper lip in the amount of 1 gr. It looks artificial and seems to have plumped up the area above the lip. I would like to have it removed.  Can this be done and how much it will cost? Thank you.


Permanent fillers and non FDA approved fillers are very difficult to remove. Only surgical excision can be used but this may leave some deformity that needs to be repaired at a later stage.
