Silicone is a material that is formulated in a laboratory, consisting of chemicals like silicon, oxygen, carbon and hydrogen. It has been thought that silicone is a safe substance and not toxic. As a result, its use has been popular in cosmetic and surgical implants, like for the breasts and buttocks. However, silicone is very controversial. In fact, the FDA has strongly warned against its use as an injectable filler. Furthermore, the FDA warned that injected liquid silicone can systematically travel throughout the body, leading to serious health problems.
A number of foreign substances have been injected in the bodies of individuals looking to improve their physical appearance in areas like the face, breasts, buttocks, genitals or abdomen. Many of these did not actually belong in the body and may include vegetable oil, synthetic oil, baby oil, expansive cells, certain petroleum-based substances, cement and silicone.
Have you had health problems after silicone injections?
One of Dr. Antún’s specialties is extracting foreign substances from patients who have been unethically treated. His over 15 years of experience in Miami with silicone injection and biopolymer removal procedures ensures that you are in good hands. His goal is to help people across the US and here in Miami with silicone injection and biopolymer removal so that they become happier and healthier, while still obtaining the cosmetic results that they wish to achieve.
Dangers of Silicone
Using foreign substances for injection is prohibited and unsafe for injection in any part of the body. Since the human body is not equipped to deal with certain foreign objects, these materials become rejected by the body, potentially leading to severe reactions. The response of the body can range from minor inflammation to significant health conditions like necrosis, severe pain, skin hardening, sagging or rashes.
Left untreated, these injected substances may travel throughout your body, causing even more damage. As a result, early intervention and extraction is critical to both healing your body and maintaining your overall health.
Dr. Antún is one of the leading experts in Miami for silicone injection removal. He can remove silicone from areas like the face, breasts, muscles or buttocks, which are all popular targets of cosmetic enhancement. Patients often experience side effects to the presence of foreign substances in these locations.
Silicone/biopolymers injected into the breast may lead to adverse events like pain, swelling, discoloration, hardening or stretch marks. Dr. Antún can not only remove these hazardous substances, but he can provide a cosmetically pleasing reconstruction of the breasts using high-quality implants that are completely safe.
Biopolymers that are injected into the buttocks can also lead to health problems like sagging, inflammation, hardening and rashes. An additional danger to injecting these types of materials into the buttocks is that they can travel to the spinal column, creating highly hazardous health concerns. Fortunately, through the use of cool laser treatment, a simple removal is possible that only leads to minimal scars.
Dr. Antún can also remove biopolymers from muscle tissue. Foreign substances injected into muscles can lead to soreness, stiffness, necrosis, pain and inflammation. Dr. Antún has the expertise to use minimally invasive procedures for the correction of these adverse events, leading to a restoration of your general health, comfort and appearance.
Open Surgery for Silicone Injection Removal
As a renowned expert in the removal of biopolymers, Dr. Antún is extremely experienced in offering removal procedures that are both safe and noninvasive. He believes strongly that the surgical removal of biopolymers is not appropriate for most patients. Aside from the cosmetic risks involving scarring, open surgery techniques can result in further damage like deformities and nerve damage.
Dr. Antún’s techniques do not involve elaborate surgery and extensive downtime. But they are still able to restore the natural beauty, health and comfort of his patients.
Cool Laser Biopolymer Removal
Dr. Antún of HD Esthetique provides the innovative Cool Laser removal method for anyone who would like to eliminate harmful biopolymers and silicone from their body. The Cool Laser emits light wavelengths into the area of treatment to liquefy injected foreign substances that are then safely vacuumed away.
The scope and complexity of the treatment that you require is dependent upon factors like your overall condition and how your body is responding to the presence of foreign materials. You will be given a thorough examination before your procedure to provide Dr. Antún with all of the information necessary to formulate your individualized treatment plan.
