In the US, we have no experience with Aquamid. As a permanent filler, it is somewhat similar to Artefill. Its not a solid implant for it to be shaved or modified. Removing any of it will result in removal of someof your own normal tissue as well. surgery in the area can risk infecting the material as well making it an even bigger problem. That is precisely why I do not recommend injection of large amounts of permanent fillers in the cheeks and would rather see patients get Hyaluronic acid fillers like Perlane, silicone cheek implants or fat injection. I would check with doctors in Europe and Asia and see what their experience is with modifiying or “shaving” Aquamid.
