Recognised for his extensive experience and skill, Mr Ferrando is often called upon to perform remedial surgery on the unfortunate patients of less competent practioners . While pleased to be able to offer such specialised procedures to resolve these cases he would much rather see stricter guide lines within the medical profession.

Mr Ferrando M.D. is internationally renowned for his pioneering expertise in the treatment and removal of Permanent Dermal Fillers.

Removing different fillers

Different fillers are suitable for particular areas depending on the texture and thickness of the skin and the depth of the filler required to correct volume loss. Different dermal filler products act in different ways. It is very important if you are having your filler removed that we know what product was injected so we know how to remove it.

Removing permanent dermal fillers

For complications arising from the use of permanent dermal fillers surgical removal may be the only option. Extensive knowledge of facial anatomy is required to carry out this complex procedure.

It is sometimes possible to remove re absorbable filler such as hyaluronic acid by simply injecting an enzyme which will destroy it. Other re absorbable fillers can be diluted and “washed away” by injecting a saline solution.  Permanent filler removal is much more complex. Silicone is undoubtably one of the most difficult products to remove because it spreads in tissue and can attach to the same tissues. Some permanent fillers, like AQUAMID can be removed with a particular technique with a special cannula, whereas some others, like Dermalive, need a surgical approach with the access like a face lift.

Both of these procedures are very difficult and challenging, therefore they need to be performed by a skilled surgeon with much experience.
