I had silicone injected into a scar of mine and wish I had not done it. I ended up with bumps (a common side effect with silicone injections). There is nothing that can be done to get rid of the bumps as silicone is permanent and cannot be removed. Kenalog, a cortisone, can be injected into the bumps to try to reduce them but I had it done several times and I still have bumps. Also, kenalog dissolves tissue so you can end up with a depression or scar from the kenalog. Some people have silicone and it looks great for 10 years and then they develop granulomas, it migrates, or their body adds more collagen around it and they end up with lumps and bumps. The only way to fix the bumps is to cut them out which leaves a scar of course.
