One of the most frequent complaints people who undergo buttock augmentation using fillers express is that they feel lumps and empty spaces internally and moreover they do not know what product has been used in their body, which generally means that illegal substances, usually silicone or some by-product were involved.
On the other hand, people lack knowledge about this procedure, looking basically for low prices and large volumes.
With these priorities in mind, they have no concern about the toxicity of the product, its biodegradability, its ability to integrate with tissues without causing side effects such as lumps, redness, skin discoloration, various types of skin stains, and a wide range of problems related with their immune system.
We are often consulted by people who, having looked for more gluteal volume, were injected with substances of dubious origin, promoted under fantasy brands and names, that refer to us one or more of the health side effects described above; this leads us to deduce those substances were silicone or some of its derivatives; when informed about their ineligibility to undergo gluteal bioplasty using PMMA tissue filler, they get surprised and even annoyed.
The reason is that legitimate biocompatible and biodegradable PMMA soft tissue filler, produced under Brazilian license cannot be intertwined with substances derived from silicone due to their mutual incompatibility.
We observe that the rationale for gluteal enhancement has not been properly understood; it is confused with the ambition for an exaggerated increase of volume of the derriere without taking into consideration the future behavior all that non-biodegrading inert mass will have when succumbing to the force of gravity.
The difference behind an inert substance and biocompatible PMMA microspheres is that the former uses buttocks as mere containers to store weight while the latter work in a totally different way: legitimate PMMA microspheres are a substitute of your own adipose tissues that behave exactly the same way.
This way, there can be no rejection or side reactions to the natural processes of the human body while silicone on the other hand is stored and calcified forever inside the internal tissues, producing all the above mentioned problems.
Gluteal enhancement by PMMA is not based on an exaggerated volume but instead it promotes firmness and improves overall shape and contour including hips achieving notorious, natural and harmonious results, what Brazilian physicians call ‘volleyball bumbum’,
never comparable to those obtained by passive storage of illegal substances used indiscriminately causing flaccidity and droopiness in gluteal tissues.
