pmma for face

Jun 15, 2013

i read about pmma for the buttox in one of your q & a\s i was wondering if it is also used for the face can you tell me somrthing about it. thank you

Response from Dr. Pierone

PMMA has also been used for facial wasting and buttock wasting. Brazilian PMMA is much less expensive and is really the only option for buttock treatment because of the large amount of filler that is needed. In the United States, Artefill is the PMMA product that is available and may be used off-label for facial lipoatrophy.

I hope this information helps and best of luck!
