Models, film stars, big shots in any industry and nowadays, even the common people who are well off are captured by the gimmicks of body contouring and enhancements. If you are one of those considering a procedure to shape or increases the size of certain body parts, such as breasts, thighs etc., revisit your desire!
Silicone oils (liquid silicone) have been used for decades as fillers and sculpturing agents but beware of using such injectable silicone for body contouring as they include a series of health hazards.
Although the FDA has approved certain injectable dermal fillers that can be used in the face (to enhance lips and cheeks) and hands, till date, there is no approved filler for large-scale body contouring or body enhancement.
This is a warning sign for all those interested in getting an injectable filler as a breast filler, butt filler or filler for spaces between the muscles. Such large-scale body enhancements can lead to serious injury, permanent scarring or disfigurement and sometimes even death.
What to Believe & What Not to Believe
Injectable silicone is permanent and stays in your body. This is different from silicone oil used in small amounts in the eyes or the one used in FDA-approved breast implants. We tell breast implants to be safe because the shell of the implant prevents the silicone from moving throughout the body. But in injectable silicone, the substance can move anywhere inside the body and cause serious health consequences resulting even in death, sometimes.
For instance, when it is injected in areas that contain many blood vessels, such as the buttocks, the silicone can travel to other parts of the body and block blood vessels in the lungs, heart or brain leading to stroke or even death sometimes. Side effects can occur even after years of treatment and this needs multiple medical and surgical interventions to treat the symptoms. Even after such interventions, patients might require ongoing treatment to cure the serious side effects.
Individuals are easily lured by glamorous body sculptures and become victims to cheaper fillers that can lead to disease and disaster. Breast enhancement and other body sculptures are a fascinating discovery of science. But, getting a fit, trim and healthy body by doing physical exercise, eating a healthy well-balance diet and living stress-free is what is needed to stay beautiful outside as well as inside.
