What is silicone removal from the lips?

Several safe and effective dermal fillers for the lips are available on the market today. However, choosing a cheaper option in the form of silicone injections can cause both aesthetic and health concerns. When injected into the lips, non-medical silicone can lead to a number of complications, including inflammation, scarring, infections, numbing, and even pain. Thankfully, plastic surgeon Dr. Timothy Katzen offers silicone removal from the lips with the use of various techniques depending on your unique needs. Dr. Katzen may utilize ultrasound-guided VASER suction or a direct excision method to effectively remove the silicone and any necessary surrounding scar tissue. Silicone removal from the lips can be a difficult and tedious process which is why it is important to choose a skilled and qualified professional such as Dr. Katzen. To learn more about silicone removal, contact our Beverly Hills, CA today to schedule an initial consultation.

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 silicone removed from the lips?

Depending on the current state of your lips, Dr. Katzen will choose a silicone removal technique that is ideal for you. During ultrasound-guided VASER assisted silicone suction (UVASS), an ultrasound is performed in order to locate the silicone and a tumescent fluid is injected into the lips. This fluid helps to reduce swelling, provide anesthesia to the area, and allow for easier removal. Next, suction is used to remove the silicone and any surrounding scar tissue. 

If direct excision is required for removal, Dr. Katzen will start by making an incision around the area of silicone and scar tissue. Next, the scar tissue and silicone are excised and the remaining skin and tissues are sutured together. If needed, diseased or infected skin can also be removed during this process.
