Beware with what you inject

Filling materials (fillers), are products that are used to fill in wrinkles or restore facial volume, safely with a minimum of complications.

There are approximately 150 fillers registered with variable degrees. We also have many non-registered materials that produce catastrophic consequences in the short, medium or long term, among these, the paralina, the liquid silicone, and oils. Its complications can go from inflammatory tumors, tissue death, infection, deformity and precipitation, to autoimmune diseases.

Approved fillers, are expensive materials, as they are the result of rigorous scientific research, which largely ensures compatibility with human tissue. Even with all the above, these products are not exempt from reactions; they are therefore used in small quantities (1-5 ml).  

Temporary fillings are preferred over the permanent, to minimize risks; in addition, given the advancement in tissue biology, we expect materials originated by the body itself, in the near future.

In recent years it has spread a process called Bioplasty, which emerged using large volumes of "Plexiglas", face, breasts, and buttocks; But even nowadays, it makes use of multiple and risky materials on which there are warnings in some countries of South America. This technique does not have the permission of plastic surgeons.   

When you want to fill, furrows, wrinkles, increase lips, breasts, or buttocks, consult a plastic surgeon.

That miracle product with minimum labeling, in the hands of a little qualified person, can return their dreams into nightmare.
