Is it possible for silicone in my lips to grow again after surgical removal of it?
Silicone can be very difficult to completely remove from the human body. The longer it is present, the more likely it can begin to migrate. Some patients can require several operations over many years to get the silicone removed. Consider returning to your surgeon and asking him to address your concerns.
