Hi wwills,
Welcome to the forum! I am actually the one who posted on your thread under the handle \"consideringbioplasty\". After reviewing this forum, I think you probably now have a more complete understanding of where I am coming from specifically.
Thank you very much for contributing your experiences with PMMA. Again, I am sorry to hear of your poor experience and it is definitely a cautionary tale for other members here who are considering bioplasty with that substance.
Best of luck to you, and if you wouldn\'t mind, please keep us all posted on your situation. I am rooting for you and will be thinking about you with positive thoughts.
Best,Skatezy

Hi, I\'m the person that wrote of my experience with PMMA on Real Self and Make Me Heal that RustyBoar has posted in this thread. My issue with PMMA has not resolved; it's an on-going battle. I'm continuing with 5FU/steroid injections which keep the granulomas under control for the most part. I've been getting regular injections for several years and so far the 5FU/steroid injections have been the best treatment for me. The injections have small side effects of their own. I now have some white patches on my face that look like vitiligo but I'm told this is a side effect of the steroid and should resolve over time. I still have new nodules popping up; the latest have occurred in the lips. I've been to many doctors and constantly search for new information. I believe I've seen or spoken with most of the Doctors experienced with PMMA (US, Canada and Mexico) including the inventor of Artecoll and have been following the prescribed treatment plan that has the lowest risk of side effects (5FU/steroid combo), The course of treatment recommended for complete resolution is 40g steroid but this can cause Atrophy (I experienced this side effect with high dose steroid) so I\'m treating with lower dose to minimize the side effects. If my granulomas and nodules were in a less conspicuous area (not my face), I\'d aggressively go after them with 40g steroid but Atrophy is not an acceptable side effect for my face. I have often wondered if the frequent injections act as a catalyst for an inflammatory/immune response and that's why I often get new nodules but I can't go for any length of time without the injections or the granulomas grow large and become visible. On the upside, the doctor I spoke with that had the most experience and longest history with PMMA complications, said the inflammatory response will stop after 5 years. If this turns out to be true, I will be a very happy camper. In reference to Dr Daniel Cassuto in Italy and melting PMMA, I decided not to pursue treatment with him because it was confirmed by a very reliable and educated source that PMMA cannot be melted at a temperature that wouldn't burn the skin so trying to melt the PMMA was not an option. I hope this info helps. wwills

Hey cool website SWM.....I will be doing the same Hanging and Clamping to get the most natural gains first...now that I had my scar tissue ligaments removed and my penis straightened, I feel like I have a new lease on life, a new penis if you will....the last thing I need is to jump into another surgery to leave me with some irregularities that will have me insecure when I am with a women... I have wasted to many years of not having opportune sex because of lumps on my shaft or something else... I am happy for the PMMA guys, very happy....But for me personally, I must wait this one out for a couple years.....

Exactly the same stance I\'m taking and for the exact same reasons.


Seems like the way to go for now. Sigh, guess I\'ll be grinding out the Clamping for at least a few more years.

Here is more of that conversation, from www.realself.com/review/artefill-artecoll-lumps
Replyzindaagi (9 posts)15 Dec 2010wwillis im thinking of going to see dr casavantes for facial bioplasty and amd now getting nervous about it i was gonna do my jaw, jawlin, chin and upper cheek area. i ruled out clinic estetica due to the fact that they use there pmma precise i was thinking dr casavantes because of new plastic pmma registered in brazil and dr nacul uses it. how would you rate the complication rate and how many other patients do you know of from clinic estetica or dr casavantes that have problems? thanks for any help and i pray that god resolves all your peoples problems on the board and wish you all happiness ttylReplywwills (20 posts)15 Dec 2010Hi Zindaggi,
This is a tough one. I\'ve had serious on-going problems with PMMA (most of the issues seem to be from the Precise not so much the original Artecoll) but tough to know for sure. I had original Artecoll 15 years ago and Precise approx 5 years ago so I tend to think the problem is Precise. I\'ve never had the Brazilian PMMA so I can\'t answer that but I do feel Dr Casavantes is a conscientious doctor and is adjusting as necessary based on negative consequences from the product. He believes the original lumps under my eyes occurred because the product was implanted too superficially but I think that's only partly correct since it was 3 years later when I started to have all the issues. I have nodules in every area that the product was ever placed and where the skin is thin, they are very visible. I think that if you stay away from any areas with thin skin (anywhere around the eyes, temple, lips, etc) and make sure the product is implanted deeply that even if you end up with nodules the chances are they would not be visible. I have tons of nodules that aren't that visible. But time will tell how much worse they will get.
On the upside of PMMA, I want to mention that my sister and mother were both treated along with me and neither of them have experienced any problems so hard to predict the long term outcome.
I think it's best to plan for the possibility of nodules and just make sure the product is deep enough that if a problem occurs it's not visible.
No one seems to know yet what will happen to the nodules and auto-immune response in the long-run. I'm hoping this will burnout and not be a lifelong problem.

@rustyboar Your experience with bioplasty is welcomed and extremely insightful. It reminds us all the risks with anything elective, and further stresses the need to weigh out pros & cons when choosing to undergo any procedure. Thanks for the doctor\'s name in Beverly Hills, it will be one more resource to contact in the event someone experiences undesirable issues. Lastly, can you clarify Ripple\'s questions please? Thanks. @lastime It has been determined time & time again that 2nd Rounds are required to resolve any (usually minor) lumps or irregularities that are nearly inevitable in most patients. Outside of that, I don\'t know of any reported complications that haven\'t already been resolved with either time and/or treatment. This is at least true for the short & current term. What are Dr. Camacho\'s main concerns regarding the product?

Hi rustybear,
Thanks for contributing to the forum and I am sorry about your poor experiences. It is definitely good to know, and should serve as one other data point for individuals who are contemplating this procedure.
I had a few questions to ask you:
1. Do you think that if the lumps were in the penis, they would cause significant problems, either physically or visually? I am just wondering if the lumps would preclude someone from having sexual activity, or if theoretically someone could live with having the lumps in the penis and accepting them as a side effect for increased Girth.
2. You said you would get PMMA done again, but not in the face. Why is that, given what has happened? Do you believe it is because the PMMA was injected superficially that you had the problems?
Best of luck to you. We are all rooting for an improvement in your situation, and I am thankful you seem to have found a doctor who can help you.
Best,Skatezy

@rustyboar--Just for clarification, this isn\'t your story, correct? I believe it\'s a few years old as I\'ve seen it on another website.
@lastime--Did Dr. Camacho say specifically why he doesn\'t recommend PMMA?

Wow...thanks for the insight and honesty. I am still a skeptic of PMMA as we all are. I am still upset to here that some of our members experience lumps and irregularities quite often usually after the first round. Being through alot of penile surgeries in my life, I am exhausted at always going for the latest thing for penis enlargement only to be left disappointed and deformed. Dr Camacho does not recommend PMMA which leaves me even more skeptical.
