Out Of curiousity I asked the dr about his knowledge regarding PMMA. Here is our correspondence ; DD: Hi dr, I was combing the internet for PMMA treatments on the buttocks and came across your site. I talked to your secretary briefly and she answered some questions.
First of all, what type of PMMA do you use? Your site says artefill but At 5,000 usd thats impossible for up to 500cc. Also how long have you been injecting PMMA? ive reaserched that alot of complications are based soley on the dr and not the product. Why is it that your one of the only drs in the US that do this procedure? I know its an off label usage but i Thought it was illiegal here. In your experiance what are the complications with PMMA? Ive heard migration and infection are possible espicially in large amounts.Thank you for your time and looking foward to hearing from you soon.
Dr d bilinski:It is a copy of Artefill from out of the USA. I was trained in Mexico back in 2009. Yes, the injector is very important but any product can haver side effects. Many are using it but the costs are so very high. Artefill is approved for facial use so since Aretfill is a PMMA that is why many use it. Yes off label use of PMMA or Aretfill. Yes those are some complications that can occur, just as with fat grafts. If you are not comfortable with the product than , please, do not use it.
Don\'t know what a copy of artefill is, but I\'m willing to bet it\'s precise. This dr was the same one posting on real self. He was extremely pro PMMA, he talked alot about clinica estetica. Very curious what he uses, prob wouldent get a straight answer .
Dd: What is the copy of artefill? New plastic? Precise? I\'m have no issues with PMMA per se... I just want to make sure it\'s medical grade. I\'m afraid of infections with this material, have you ever diagnosed this or seen it in other patients?
Dr:It is med grade.' Dr.

There is NO chance of infection of PMMA for two reasons :- (1) The new collagen around them is highly vascularised. (2) There are millions of macrophages around these beads will kill any Microbes coming near to them .
But there is a possibility of foreign body granuloma formation in a lower grade PMMA and if it is injected intra-dermal which can be treated with multiple local steroid injection (Kenalog) .
If the PMMA is injected deep there will be less chance of developing f.b.granuloma ( e.g. no granulomas in buttocks PMMA injection, but it can be 1 : 1000 in the face )
@smartman I havent read anything suggesting there are infections, but all these drs including this clown list it as a complication. I ask just to be sure its not as common as they suggest.
On a side note, im sure people think we are crazy for going to Mexico for getting this taboo procedure done....but after the back and forth with this US dr that wouldent even tell me what type of PMMA he uses, I feel alot better about going to someone that atleast ACTS like they care about their POTENTIAL patients!
The American Dr\'s will not like PMMA that is used overseas till they can use it themselves here in the US and make tons of money off of it. They will then talk about how great this shit is!! It is ALMOST always about money!!!!!!!
@ mustang this dr already does PMMA in the states. In fact the only one that I have seen to this point. He seems extremely shady and spiteful. Definatley not a dr I would want for ANYTHING. He only does hands , face, and buttocks. Here\'s what I mean about spiteful ;
Dd:Well I def don\'t want a doctor thats not gonna tell me what he\'s injecting in me, that I have to live with for the rest of my life....call me crazy. Be well
Dr:You too be well, enjoy the traveling to these other countries.'
Very unprofessional to say the least, just can\'t belive he has the time to be codesending and no time to be informative and inciteful about his work.
