No way. How many people have mentioned small lumps and nodules in the penis? These things aren\'t such an issue when injected into a deeper layer, such as under the Dartos fascia, but in the face they would be very obvious. Also if a complication did happen it isn\'t something you can hide. To remove it from the face would require cutting out the surrounding tissue. Many US Dr\'s are totally against PMMA and I believe it\'s due to a large number of patietns being unhappy with complications that wouldn\'t be such a big deal in the penis. On top of that there are actually good temporary products available for the face, such as Restylane. I\'d go as far as to say that the unsuitability of PMMA in the face is probably the key reason why PMMA has been tainted in the US and no Dr will consider it for other body parts such as the penis.
Point taken, and granuloma rate may be as high as one percent, as guaged by the length of time since techniques and product were standardized, maybe 15 years or so, and lifetime incidence is still unknown, but Why is it approved for use in the US, Why do so many Dr.s use it, and How does Artefil compare with Metacril (kind of a separate question, um, yeah)?
There are much better methods to improve the face and elasticity of the skin, and probably cheaper too. PMMA is good for the penis because so far nothing better does what it does, but we cannot say the same for the face.
@mexmuscle, there aren\'t more effective methods for glabella or nasolabial lines. Just to clarify, I don\'t mean PMMA for a nosejob or to make chicken-pox scar less obvious. If you want you remover wrinkles in the forehead or that second chin, then there are surgical procedures not involving chemicals. However, unless you want to pump 1000\'s of $ of Juvaderm into your face every 9 months or less, you\'ll have to bite the permanent-filler bullet for right now.
Cool, but then you are comparing what PMMA does for the penis with what other fillers do for the the volume of the lips and filling in wrinkles.
For tightening the skin and reducing wrinkles fillers are not better than laser skin tightening devices. I think (underline think) most fillers (but not PMMA) vanish after a while, they are temporary, in that sense, PMMA might be better. The effect of skin tightnening devices lasts longer.
