What is silicone injections removal with an open technique?
Not infrequently, patients obtain illegal, cheap, and dangerous silicone injections (also referred to as biopolymer, PMMA, aquafil, and more) to help them attain their desired look. However, choosing a cheaper filler option instead of a quality option often creates a dangerous situation. Non-medical-grade silicone injected into the wrong places can cause deformity, severe pain, prolonged swelling, numbing, scarring, chronic infections, granulomas, electrolyte imbalances, organ failure requiring organ transplant, and even cancer, in some rare cases. Using an open-removal surgical technique, plastic surgeon Dr. Timothy Katzen can remove silicone injections from any body area. Though open silicone injections removal is difficult, Dr. Katzen is highly skilled and qualified to effectively remove these unwanted injections from his Beverly Hills, CA, patients' bodies. Begin your silicone injections removal process by scheduling a consultation at J. Timothy Katzen, M.D. Beverly Hills.
What Are the Benefits of Silicone Injection Removal?
Silicone injections (biopolymer/PMMA) can be dangerous and lead to many problems — especially in the hands of the wrong individuals who use shoddy silicone and techniques. If you were misled and are paying the price for these injections today, Dr. Katzen can help. Benefits of silicone injection removal using the open technique include:
- Reducing or eliminating the risk of side effects from botched silicone injections, including but not limited to pain, itching, inflammation, infection, cancer, and organ failure
- Obtaining a more natural look
- Removal of both the silicone (PMMA or aquafil) and resulting scar tissue
- The open technique can be performed on any area of the body
- Dr. Katzen is a highly experienced surgeon for this procedure
J. Timothy Katzen, M.D. Beverly Hills Reviews
My experience with Dr. Timothy Katzen is wonderful. His surgical skills are top notch and he has great bedside manner. I have had 3 procedures with Dr. Katzen and happy with all three.
Dr. Katzen is amazing. His knowledge and bedside banner area impeccable. He kept me informed every step of the way. His staff is just as impressive, they are patient and responsive 24hrs a day. He is great with the bariatric patient community, he knows how to get rid of our loose skin and hide all the scars. Thank you for all your help!
My self-esteem and confidence have already improved by milestones - I normally don't write reviews but Dr. J Timothy Katzen and his team have gone above and beyond my expectations. I had gastric sleeve surgery and lost a total of 125 pounds. I kept convincing myself that I don't need plastic or reconstructive surgery. I figured I was healthy, and excess skin and fat is something I could live with. Boy was I wrong. Looking at my flabs and wrinkled skin was a bad reminder of my old obese self, the person I wanted to move on from. I had such low self-esteem when I was obese. I found Dr. J Timothy Katzen through Real Self and had no doubt he is the right surgeon for my situation. Dr. Katzen was the clear choice because of how many before and after pictures he had, the number of great reviews, the questions and answers, the videos, and his credentials, I mean I can go on forever. I felt super confident in my decision and sure enough, he delivered. Dr. Katzen did a circumferential body lift and I could not be more pleased with the results and care I received from everyone. I am forever grateful for how Dr. Katzen transformed my body. My self-esteem and confidence have already improved by milestones.

(Translated by Google) I am happy to be a patient of Dr. to be cats. I'm an aquafill victim. After my injection in Düsseldorf in 2017, I ran into problems very quickly. For several years I regularly took medication for pain and was afraid for my health and for my life. From the first minutes of meeting Dr. Katzen on I realized that he perfectly knows all the problems related to aquafilling.Before the operation I was worried, but my doctor approached me and reassured me, I went to the operating room with a smile . Everything went well and the result is better than I could have imagined. dr Katzen was very careful with my body, it looks like I have no gel. I am thin and you could see and feel aquafilling. This gel was in the layers of the skin, but now there is nothing there. Many thanks to dr. Katzen and his entire team (Original) Ich bin glücklich, Patientin von Dr. Katzen zu sein. Ich bin ein Aquafilling-Opfer. Nach meiner Spritze 2017 in Düsseldorf habe ich sehr schnell Probleme bekommen. Mehrere Jahre lang nahm ich regelmäßig Medikamente gegen Schmerzen und hatte Angst um meine Gesundheit und um mein Leben. Von den ersten Minuten des Treffens mit Dr. Katzen an wurde mir klar, dass er alle Probleme im Zusammenhang mit Aquafilling perfekt kennt.Vor der Operation war ich besorgt, aber mein Arzt kam auf mich zu und beruhigte mich, ich ging mit einem Lächeln in den Operationssaal . Alles hat gut geklappt und das Ergebnis ist besser als ich es mir hätte vorstellen können. Dr. Katzen war sehr vorsichtig mit meinem Körper, es sieht so aus, als hätte ich kein Gel. Ich bin dünn und Aquafilling war zu sehen und zu spüren. Dieses Gel war in den Hautschichten, aber jetzt ist dort nichts mehr. Vielen Dank an Dr. Katzen und sein gesamtes Team

How is the Open Technique performed?
In your initial consultation with Dr. Katzen, you will decide which silicone injections technique is best for your particular case. During your open surgery for silicone injection removal, an incision is made around the area containing the silicone and associated scar tissue. Usually, the incision for the open technique is placed at the top of the buttock for patients with silicone buttock injections. Once the previously injected silicone and scar tissue are excised, the skin and tissues are re-approximated. In many cases, diseased skin is also surgically removed. Typically, this method is used on the buttocks, breasts, legs, thighs, face, and lips. During your consultation, J. Timothy Katzen, M.D. Beverly Hills is happy to address any other questions or concerns about the open surgical technique.
What can I expect after?
During silicone injection removal operations, the implants are removed and scar tissue may also need to be eliminated. Scar tissue is common after a silicone implantation and needs to be removed if it's affecting the shape of your body or causing discomfort. After the implants have been removed, Dr. Katzen may perform an additional lift, fat transfer, or both depending on what was discussed during your appointment. There are also a number of options to replace volume following an implant removal to enhance the shape of the breasts, buttocks, or more.
