Aquamid 10 years+ ??

I had Aquamid injected into my lips in 2006 and I have had no complications whatsoever. I understand that this is a permanent filler designed to last more than 8 years, however what happens after the 8 years? Will the Aquamid ever go away and if so, once most of it has depleted, will it leave horrible bumps and granulomas in my lips? My understanding of Aquamid when I got it injected was that after 10 years or so it would just disappear. Now I am worried about how my lips will look after this time.

I'm thinking of getting aquamid in my lips and I've heard so many horror stories so I am nervous. Are your lips still ok? Have you ever encountered any puss, infection, lumps or movement? Please let me know as I am really looking to get a more permanent filler! Thanks!
