Hello and thank you for the question.
Aquamid is an injectable filler composed of a crossed-linked polyacrylamide. Swallowing small amounts of this material during normal handling is not likely to cause harmful effects. Swallowing large amounts may be harmful. If you are concerned your health has been compromised, I would suggest you follow up with your physician for evaluation.
Lastly, I would strongly advice against performing procedures on yourself as this may lead to complications including, but not limited to, infections, permanent deformity, vascular compromise with tissue loss and permanent scarring.
