A patient asked 3 years ago

I had bellafill injection at summerlin hospital 2 months ago on my nose to treat irregularity of my nose implant. However it left me 2 bumps on unwanted areas we never talked about injecting it there, can these bumps be removed by surgery when I have nose bridge implant and remove the implant then remove the filler and insert new implant or is it gonna leave me a scar tissue. Or is this too dangerous to do. Or should I keep getting filler to cover the mistakes

Removing Bellafill from Nose

 
Hi and thank you for your question! There are non-surgical options to try to smooth out any bumps following Bellafill injection including steroid injection. However since you will be undergoing surgery anyway, it might also be possible to try to remove it during the procedure. I would recommend consulting with an experienced physician to evaluate all the available options. Bellafill is a great filler but I personally prefer to use it for deeper injections (unless it’s for scar treatment). I hope it helps and good luck!
