Dr. Antún was a trailblazing pioneer in biopolymer extraction, which involves any type of foreign material placed within the body that provokes a negative reaction. His last 15 years have been spent honing his craft in this area. During this time, he has developed innovative techniques that allow him to safely and minimally invasively remove these harmful foreign substances that are illegally implanted into patients worldwide. He has helped thousands of patients who have been the victims of con artists, as well as practitioners who lack qualifications to perform medical procedures. He has helped patients who have received injections of synthetic oil, expansive cells, cement, and other foreign substances into the face, breasts, abdomen, buttocks, genitals, ankles and legs.
Dr. Antún’s Cool Laser treatments help to extract biopolymers in a simple, minimally invasive procedure. This helps patients avoid open surgery and the risk of adverse events. If the buttocks contain biopolymers, a butt lift procedure is performed once this material has been extracted. Once this type of surgery has been performed, Dr. Antún’s professional team of aestheticians utilize a variety of innovative medical tools to provide outstanding patient aftercare so that each and every patient is completely satisfied and obtains the best possible results.
