I wish we did not have to \"lie\" about our procedures. Women have almost any part of their bodies altered and most of them do not feel they need to hide it. for me, I know I would tell them exactly what it is.......just to see the look on their faces

You could say you had a correction of peyronie\' disease (as hoddle said) and the doctor used some non-absorbable surgical mesh (100% contains no metal) (and you don\'t have any idea what type of mesh they have used) for that and you had this surgery some where e.g. in russia or china and you have an excellent result till now ???

Or alternately, you could just respond, \"Why do you ask? Jealous?\" LOL

InteXen LP is an excellent substitute graft material for the tunica albuginea, however, they would certainly be able to distinguish the difference. Best bet is to come clean. You could always state that you had bioplasty to correct a birth deformity for aesthetic reasons. Doctor/patient confidentiality is on your side.

Just say you had an Indexten (sp?) graft to fix a cruve from Peyronies disease. This will explain any abnormalities the scan picks up in the penis.

i have an mri and cat scan coming up due to a herniated disc, they asked if i had any foreign meterials in my body. I\'m a bit embarrassed to answer it honestly. Any advice?

@swampman
Yes it is detectable through MRI, there is a doctor from Sao-Paulo she did make a study of her patients (post-pmma injection in the buttocks) with MRI and I think she proved that there is no migration of PMMA in her patients, in the other hand there was migration of liquid silicon.

(From surviving HIV patient) :-
\" I was impressed with the work on Dr Suzana Barreto from Sao Paulo, Brazil. She does a MRI on patients before she injects them with PMMA and a few months later to see how the implant behaves in people. She showed great slides on MRI results of the face and buttocks. She also compared MRIs done in patients that have had silicone injected to show how silicone migrates and shifts in tissue. I would love for her to present in the United States since I had never seen anyone who has MRI data on patients with any injectable implants. \"

I wouldn\'t lie. I would just say that I had myself augmented and leave it at that.
