Heard of PMMA (Medical Grade) OR Dr Casavantes? Jun 27, 2011 7:31:02 GMT -5

In my opinion the data is more than sufficient to support the concerns.
I am not a doctor but I do have a pre-med undergrad degree and a graduate degree in Biomedical Engineering and so have enough background to read the literature in context.
I am surprised you would question the medical explanation for the concerns. They are consistently stated by doctors in the US who are opposed to semi-permanent and permanent fillers in general and PMMA in particular. The two concerns that are cited are
1) Granuloma formation
2) Difficulty in removal if there is any problems
IMO those concerns are very legitimate and reasonable and I understand why a majority of US plastic surgeons are opposed to the permanent fillers. Don’t forget that some of those docs were burnt with the previous generation of PMMA filler products! The more conservative docs will wait for 5 years and see how the studies and data look.
It is important to remember that the competing Hyaluronic Acid based products don’t have those side effects or any other major side effects.
As far as penis enhancement usage, most doctors believe that risks/complication rate in any penis enhancement procedure is too high to even consider. The anecdotal evidence presented on this forum supports that view.
As far as dd72 posts to “real self” and “make me heal” I thought the docs gave their opinions. What did you expect them to say? Quite frankly the questions were either argumentative or made no sense.
First doc said he had no experience with penis and low complication rate in buttock use.
Second doc TJ based (obviously uses PMMA) said he would not inject in amounts larger than 2 cc and that even 10cc would cause issues. Including granulomas.
Third doc says not a fan of permanent injectable and sites granuloma
Fourth doc says not seen any issue with PMMA , seen silicone issues, and (correctly) granulomas have to be excised.
By the way plastic surgeons do not diagnose granulomas. Only a pathalogist can make that call.
I just don’t any issues with those responses given the context of posts on plastic surgery message boards. If dd72 was serious about getting credible answers to PMMA questions he should find an experienced PMMA doctor and schedule a consultation with him or her.
That’s what I did.
