Medical techniques and expertise in the sculpting process Bioplasty involves, cannot overlook the importance doctor performing procedure has since the impeccable and most neat performance of this technique focuses on the deep PMMA inner micro spheres placement and outer volume and contouring of softer tissues at the same time, which needs expertise, not improvisation as 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 underground brands found commonly.
Microspheres of Polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) have been implanted in human body for long, yet only recent years brought us the final answer as far as aesthetic improvement is concerned. Artecoll developed in Germany in 1994 by professor Gottfriend has widely spread in Europe, South America and Canada; complications as such are very rare, negative rate is practically nonexistent, in 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 commonly tempted by financial benefits, putting aside the relevance 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 bio-material which will act friendly with human body causing no side effects as silicone does.
Silicone, also being an inert material, i.e. not biodegradable nor biocompatible thus likely to cause a variety of side effects, does not comply with principles behind Bioplasty; carboxymethylcellulose instead, fully meets soft tissues filling of outer areas shaping and contouring.
Once again there must be intelligence behind a last generation bio-material in the sense it prevents migration of 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 blood stream and becoming a serious health threat and even 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 sizes than needed, 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 one is to be cautious about since a variety of substances ranging from silicone gel to biopolymers and plain H2O solution 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 Bioplasty offers; 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 tissues retraction, resorption, aging, volume loss, sinking areas, low muscles 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 once carrier vehicle biodegrades, 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 treated area collapsing quickly.
