Aquamid Vs Bio Alcamid for Buttocks Filler

I am considering Aquamid or Bio Alcamid for permanent buttocks filler. Do you think this is a safe option and if so, which of the above is the best and has fewer side effects and disadvantages?

Buttock fillers


Fat transfer remains the best filler for buttock enhancement. If you do not have enough fat consider implants.

Permanent fillers like silicone and hydrogel are illegal and a BAD idea.

Buttock Filler


Permanent fillers beware !!! Buttock, face, anywhere...I have removed enough from other "surgeons" to know it is not a good idea.

See my good friend Dr. Jay Clavert on the Tyra Banks show from 11/4 "Black Market Plastic Surgery"...not a good idea!

See a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon whom you trust and who is trusted in your community to discuss options!

Good luck!

Im Against Synthetic Injections for Large Augmentations


Bio-alcamid and other fillers are probably a good option for the face, where the filler can be used on small areas. We are talking about using 2-5cc here. For the average buttock augmentation, though, the volumes are in the hundreds of cc's.

You cannot inject that amount of filler and expect a finely contoured result that is free of lumps or bumps. I also see questions on these very boards asking what can be done to remove permanent fillers. What happens as your tissue naturally moves wth the aging process ?

In the face at least, I don't think these permanent fillers move with the tissues in a natural manner.

Your own fat is a much better option, and implants a distant second.
