how long does bio-alcamid last?

Apr 4, 2009

refering to internet sources, bio-alcamid is a permanent filler but the tissue and muscles in the face moves so the product is not permanent ... after how many years i could see the loss of this filler. i am confused some people says 8 months and others 3 to 5 years...

Response from Dr. Pierone

Hello, and thanks for posting.

This is a permanent filler so the results last many years. However, late infections related to this product are an ongoing concern. In my opinion there are better choices for correction of facial lipoatrophy.

Good luck!

Is PMMA fine considering Artefill is not avilable?
Who would you choose to administer PMMA?
