I am a female and had silicone injected into my lip

Question:
I am a female and had silicone injected into my lip many years ago.  It looks unattractive and overly full.  Can anything be done for this?

Answer:
In certain situations, the skin of the lip can be excised in a long cigar-shaped fashion from side to side, yielding an imperceptible scar.  One would have to actually examine the patient to see if they are eligible for this type of excision and removal. If the deformity is severe, there is no doubt that the situation can be improved.  Whether it can be made to look absolutely normal depends on the findings.
