I had pmma injections done on my butt in November and I wanted to know when does it stop growing and are there any long term side effects?

You unfortunately did not find out about the very high risks of having PMMA injected before you had it done. There are so many risks that there really is nothing we can offer you now. Just (more)

There can be plenty of them, but you should have asked these questions before the procedure. Now just enjoy them and don't look for trouble. (more)

The issue with PMMA is not that it can not increase the size but of it's sterility and injections techniques. It is not available "legally" here in USA. So if you are having it done in the (more)

It's a very common procedure here in Brazil. Unfortunately some people had necrosis by the use of PMMA. It's a risk because while some people had necrosis, other people got nice results, but there is no studies of how the PMMA will work over a long time. I wanted to apply it on my butt, but besides very expensive (can cost up to R$20k, which is around $11k),I can loose skin on my butt from the necrosis... just very scary.

For your information I did ask a lot of questions before and I did do a lot of research. I only now recently discovered this site and I am having some not so pleasant side effects so I asked a question. And I am not one to make trouble.
