TOPIC: Alter on PMMA?

Alter on PMMA? 7 years 11 months ago #1283357697

I\'m in agreement that PMMA appears to be the best option right now for Girth enhancement. Of course, there are no perfect solutions, but a couple things got me thinking:
-Rosenthal talked about how bad PMMA is, and said he often gets calls to take the PMMA out, which is not possible. Obviously, I\'m aware that he has an interest is selling the Belladerm, and cannot offer PMMA.
-googling for \"PMMA & Penis\" gets a result from some doctor is South Korea that is against PMMA. This caught my attention because it can be offered in South Korea.
-this forum is the main source of people discussing PMMA for Girth enhancement. You\'d expect after reading this forum for a few hours you\'d see a comparable number of mentions on other PE websites.

Anyways, thought it would be interesting if Dr. Alter has opined on this. He doesn\'t offer widening, and is highly respected in this area.

Alter is against everything. He can afford to be as he is a busy and varied practice. Hence I trust his opinion above the other Dr\'s in this industry. All the other PE Dr\'s have to be pro one procedure and against the others, as their livelihood depends on it. Alter doesn\'t do widening surgeries as he got fed up trying to deal with all the complications and he could afford to just stop doing them. Rosenthal can\'t, hence he persists with Belladerm despite the high dissatisfaction and complication route. Elist is the same with his implant. He\'s invested so much in it and his practice depends on it\'s success. Giunta will push FFT, as without he\'s just a plastic surgeon without the greatest reputation.

The guy is South Korea has only mentioned PMMA on his website since PhalloBoards came along. It\'s the same with Elist, who now mentions it on his site. The popularity of PMMA has without doubt had a big effect on the business of Phalloplasty Dr\'s, as this forum is by far the number 1 resource in the world. Hence many make claims against it, whilst ignoring the fact that the only reason we even discovered it was due to being at a loss of what to do, as all the other methods had such an appalling track record. I\'m not advocating PMMA, as I haven\'t had it myself and am still unsure if I feel it\'s safe enough yet. However, I will say, that after over 10 years of following the PE industry I\'ve never seen a procedure that has anywhere near as good of a safety/satisfaction track record as PMMA. Sadly that isn\'t saying much for PMMA, as the other options have shockingly bad track records, hence so few surgeons around the world offer the procedures.
