Silicone, biopolymers or other body materials extraction surgery
Removal of biopolymers from the body (subtitled in English)
Biopolymer extraction on the face (subtitled in English)
Silicone or biopolymers is a permanent filler that has been widely used to augment lips, cheekbones, facial wrinkles including buttocks, legs and arms.
About 20 years ago they were withdrawn from the market because it was observed that, over time, caused more or less serious problems of: displacement, rejection, pain, inflammation and even more serious problems of necrosis and embolisms. This has created a new disease called “Iatrogenic Allogenosis”.
The most commonly used substances have been and continue to be: silicone, paraffin, liquid petrolatum, petroleum jelly, mineral or vegetable oil, animal fat and methacrylate. A large percentage of patients are unaware or uninformed of the injected material as they are usually injected in poorly accredited centers.
We say that it is still being done because in some centres there are still doctors and not doctors who continue to put them illegally and without scruples, knowing that they are going to cause a safe problem for patients.
