Warnings and Nightmares from Buttocks and Hip Fillers
All types of booty injectables: Hydrogel, PMMA and silicone can have problems - many of which are life-lasting, some are life threatening.
The primary source of these problems are:
1. Doing too much at once
2. Doing too much volume for your body to handle
3. Getting injected by an unskilled, unlicensed practitioner
4. Being injected with a low quality or dangerous filler concoction.
PMMA Injections Problems
The recent horrors of Brazilian beauty queen Andressa Urach should be a wake-up call to any gal considering PMMA injections.
Having just placed second in the annual Miss BumBum contest that selects the hottest booty in all of Brazil - Miss Urach began to use PMMA to enhance the appearance of muscle tone in her thighs. The results are a nightmare - her healthy tissue became infected and began to rot. She nearly died. She’ll face a lifetime of health challenges and pain.
While most results are visible immediately after filling - so too are certain nightmares if they happen in your case including a negative immune response which causes the lungs to fill with fluid, or from a pulmonary embolism. Both an immune response and an embolism can cause rapid and certain death. Not doing too much at once and steering clear of breast/chest injections are two ways you can reduce this risk.
Silicone Buttocks Injections Problems
Changes in your soft tissue after silicone injections are inevitable no matter who does it or what quality of silicone is utilized. Acute changes such as hardness, lumps, and infection necessitate immediate medical attention. The latter circumstances will require specialists in such care.
When properly injected with high-grade silicone, there are not usually any side effects from minor injections. The problems occur when the volumes required to achieve an extra large booty are required. When you inject silicone at too high a volume (like to volume needed to increase the size of the buttock) granulomas can form. Once a granuloma forms it can sometimes be treated with steroids. Other problems can include infections, granulomas, cellulitis, and persistent skin infections, disfigurement and skin dimpling. It is very easy to have silicone injected, but very difficult to have it removed. The removal can frequently be very complex, involve lengthy surgery and multiple operations is not uncommon. Finally, it’s not uncommon to expect scars in locations that would otherwise be undesirable.
