Hello, and thanks for posting.
Unfortunately, this issue comes up occasionally and the treatment options are limited. Some clinicians have performed a formal skin incision and washed out the Bio-Alcamid with saline or hydrogen peroxide. Another approach is to perform an intraoral incision a try to remove the product through the mouth. This would depend on where in the face the contour irregularities exist. A facelift with removal of the Bio-Alcamid during the procedure is another approach that has worked.
I hope that this information helps and best of luck to you!
