The medical techniques and expertise involved in the Bioplasty sculpting process, cannot overlook the importance of the doctor performing the procedure has since the impeccable and most neat performance of this technique focuses on the deep placement of PMMA inner microspheres, as well as outer volume and contouring of softer tissues at the same time; which needs expertise, not improvisation as is often seen.
The use of a legal and officially approved PMMA brand in Colombia is our guarantee of the legitimacy of a substance produced to stand apart from potential health risks associated to silicone injections, and low-quality, chemically produced substances that do not meet standards, such as the underground brands found commonly.
Microspheres of Polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) have been implanted in the human body for long, yet only in recent years it has brought us the final answer as far as aesthetic improvement is concerned. Artecoll, developed in Germany in 1994 by professor Gottfried has widely spread in Europe, South America and Canada; complications as such are very rare, negative rate is practically nonexistent, and orthopedic surgery satisfactory records are simply amazing.
The process for producing PMMA microspheres is extremely unique being that it aims to generate perfectly round microspheres which are totally free of contamination; this is very important since only exceptionally smooth surfaces will promote rapid encapsulation by collagen, and patient’s own self defense mechanisms to isolate a foreign visitor. It is theorized microspheres that lack the process where they are brought into exact sizes, large enough to avoid migration and phagocytosis yet sufficiently small as to pass through infiltration cannulas, are bound to end up in deficient standards which translates into complex processes.
Substances that have not engaged with excellence will often be found in underground brands which use materials that are produced under poor manufacturing standards that are commonly tempted by financial benefits, putting aside the importance that perfectly smooth PMMA microspheres surfaces have within the whole context involved in bioplasty.
Furthermore, the vehicle which is used to transport PMMA microspheres to set desired places, must be a biocompatible and biodegradable biomaterial which will act in a friendly manner with the human body causing no side effects as silicone does.
Silicone, also being an inert material, (i.e. not biodegradable or biocompatible) is likely to cause a variety of side effects, and does not comply with the principles behind bioplasty; carboxymethylcellulose instead, fully meets the soft tissue filling of outer areas, thereby shaping and contouring.
Once again, there must be intelligence behind a last-generation biomaterial in the sense that it prevents migration of the substance, being that reticulated polymer chains provide self-cohesion elements to the formulation of the substance so that material will be prevented from trespassing cellular barrier as normally occurs with silicone, reaching the bloodstream and becoming a serious health threat and even a potential death risk.
Silicone which will freely settle anywhere in the body, from vital organs to articulations, is not what bioplasty proposes.
Irregular spheres, smaller in size than needed, and with sharp edges produced by non-selective enough and poor chemical processes, will derive into obvious lesser quality substances which surely will also lack approval and official health certification; however, equally reaching people under different speeches and statements.
PMMA microspheres will remain deeply placed at inner gluteus anatomical planes forming a mesh-like inner interconnection of soft tissues growth, i.e. connective tissue formation cushioned and amalgamated by vector substance’s presence.
Vector substances is one to be cautious about since a variety of substances ranging from silicone gel to biopolymers and plain H2O solutions are commonly part of non-certified substances.
Vehicles used in Artecoll and Juvederm suffer fast resorption, whilst on the other hand, collagen and hyaluronic compounds are not really adequate for large muscles groups enhancement and augmenting, where higher viscosity and density is required.
Carboxymethylcellulose is a biocompatible vehicle that holds high durability and cohesiveness properties to the extent of being considered a superior quality permanent filler.
Several years of optimum results is the normal final turnout that bioplasty offers; a carrier substance lasting a long time rather than one or two years is crucial not only to comply with patient’s most evident expectations, but for the perfect integration of both PMMA microspheres and outer superficial levels where tissue retraction, resorption, aging, volume loss, sinking areas, and low muscle development are mostly evident.
Carboxymethylcellulose makes an outstanding vehicle since not only volume and shape are kept intact for longer periods of time, but also carrier being highly cohesive itself, will add and maintain a perfect balance between PMMA implantation, amalgamating and cushioning inner and outer anatomical planes for an optimum integration.
Fast resorbed fillers’ manufacturers claim inner connective tissue encapsulation is sufficient to generate muscle volume, stating that once the carrier vehicle biodegrades, the procedure will have sufficient body in itself as to cover a role impossible to be met through PMMA microspheres implantation only. Expecting volume and corrections mostly evidenced at superficial levels to be solved out by connective tissue formation only, is not quite feasible in our opinion. A high quality carrier substance is a must in order to offer long lasting soft tissues corrections rather than having the treated area collapsing quickly.
