HELP! PMMA BUTTOCK INJECTIONS COLOMBIA OR MEXICO?!?!
I have been researching about these shots, and the two places out of all it boiles down to is Clinic'estetica in Tijuana Mexico, or Internationalsurgery.com in Cucuta Colombia.

The reason why Clinic'estetica is one of my options is because I've seen azteck girl blogs and photos and it looks amazing! They told me app for 500cc total is 5,000. Kinda pricey. But like the fact I can actually contact them by phone.

I saw a few people post the had injections from International Surgey in Colombia but no actual personal before and after photos. They quoted me for 600cc 3,500. Not bad. But its very annoying the fact they only email you! They do have a number but its a out of country number. On there site the before and after photos look amazing but on Clinic'estetica before and afters don't look as great, but based on azteck girl's blog and personal experience and photos make a huge difference. My brain hurts from trying to pick..Save about over 1,000 and go to Colombia or go to Clinic'estetica where it seems some what more legit? Anyone who has been to either of them personaly, recommendations to other PMMA docs, or just opinions? THANK YOU!!

If some one emailed you great photos, does that mean it's from PPMA?
I think you know the answer to that.

You are playing with fire!  February 22, 2011 2:49 PM

Every few months, it seems, there are reports in the media of unfortunate people dying from high volume buttock injections. What happens is that the material injected (silicone, PMMA, etc) gets into a blood vessel and travels up to the heart, lungs and brain. What we do not hear about are the many people who survive the procedure but have poor cosmetic results. I always tell my patients not to put pressure on an area that has been injected so that the injected material does not displace. The buttocks is an area where you obviously cannot do that. I would imagine that the frequency of lumpiness after high volume filler injections to the buttocks is very high and if a permanent filler like PMMA is used, there will be very little that can be done about it after the fact.

After tons of pain, travel, time, and about 5 grand down the drain I did not see much results. I wish I ould have saved for Butt implants instead. I went to Clinic'estetica in Mexico and had 500cc total. I want to share this with so you do NOT waste your money. Save for implants instead.

wow...I'm so sorry you're not happy with your results. The only thing I can say is that I've had a few procedures done at clinic' estetica and my results were great! Each person is so different and I guess each body reacts differently to the product which is what I was told from the begining. Anyways implants look and FEEL fake...I know 2 people who had them and one of them already had them removed and my other friend is saving up to have them removed. Like with any procedure/surgury or whatever you have done; not everybody has the same results. Good luck!

Bioplasty vs. butt implants   December 8, 2018 8:35 AM

I got butt implants in Venezuela first. After several years they ruptured with substance leaking into my body. I eventually got septic and almost died. After the implants were removed they left me looking deformed and disfigured. I became very depressed and withdrawn. I wouldn't even remove my clothes in front of my husband I was so ashamed of my body . Thank God for Dr. Kagan in Miami and Dr. Wiener in Juarez. The combination if the two gave me a beautiful new shape and body I always wanted. Thank you Dr. Kagan and Dr. Wiener I am forever greatful for your wonderful expertise.

Bioplasty with Dr. Wiener in Juarez  December 8, 2018 8:46 AM

I would need more than happy to send you pictures if the beautiful work Dr. Wiener did after my deformed body came to be from ruptured implants that I got in Columbia. Just email me at jadon 87 ulibarri@gmail.com and I will send you pictures if how I stayed after seeing Dr. Wiener in Juarez I am very very happy but just so you know he doesn't do pmma he does bioplasty sessions it is a water based substances and it grows for some people. It grew even more for me after about 6 months.

Pmma butt injections  May 18, 2019 2:42 PM

I'm not sure what problems you had with Dr.Mauricio Weiner but I've had 2 sessions with him and I think he has done the best job equivalent to Miami. The Pmma was way more volume than fat injections and so far they have lasted 5 years and they are still growing. The PMMA that Dr. Weiner puts grows about a year after your session you will notice it continues to add volume. The fat injections were great and Dr. Kegan did a fabulous job shaping my body exactly like I wanted it. The combination has left my figure as close to perfect as I have ever wanted. I'm am super happy and my husband , who is a total ass man LOVES IT!!!! So I don't know who had problems with Dr. Weiner but he did an amazing job fixing the mess that Columbia made with those Fucken implants they put in my ass that ruptured and nearly Fucken killed me and left me a mess. Definitely if you value your life stay away from there!!!!!
