PMMA Hip "fillings" & Injections
« on: April 20, 2007, 07:14:48 PM »
  Something just came up that I'd like to know. I "briefly" thought of going to Rio to have fillings in my hips, but then, I suddenly realized that I'm injecting Fuzeon and occasionally use my hips, but with PMMA there I could not use that area for ANY injection of whatever medicine I may need. Not even antibiotics given the case or Demerol for pain. This would really complicate my life so I'm staying with what left of my buns. At least my hiv negative partner still enjoys them as when they where nice full hips! ;D

But really, is my assumption true of not being able to inject medications once a filling is placed in that area? ??? I need some feedback on this issue...

Wow. :o For the first time nobody has answered one of my posts! Lol. I guess nobody knows the answer to this one. I did ask the doctor who did my cheeks and my assumption is correct. You cannot inject anything into the hip area once a filling is placed there. Nothing. No medication at all. So that makes a "hip filling" a blade with a double edge...

  I think I know the Brazilian doctor you are talking about. I might email him soon just to ask that question because he is the one with the most experience using PMMA.
  My doctor in Puerto Rico did my face only because that was my most affected area. When I posted this email I called him to ask that question and his reply was that I should not inject anything in the hip area If I did go through with the hip filling with PMMA. That was enough for me to forget about the whole hip filling. I'm pretty happy the way I am right now, anyways. Thanks for replying to my post and good luck in your future procedures.

I had hip injections of PMMA for cosmetic reasons, genetic birth defect of hips that had like an S curve to them, made me look like a boy, wanted to look more like a woman.  You really have to be careful of your doctor.  I really liked mine at first, but turned out that he was not as experienced with hips as he lead on.  I did end up with overfilling on one side so that now I look like my hips is a muscle that bulges out. It did not get tapered properly into my thigh or buttock and so I really am not too pleased about that side.  Still, overall, the funny bump is probably better than the funny indentations I started out with, but after spending so much money, I really wanted any imperfections to be extremly minor.  Also, due to high pressure or whatever, some of the filler migrated instantly to the front of my pelvis right after injection so I ended up forming a lump where I did not want one.  I think with the hips the key is to have patience and a doctor who will take the time to do it really s l o w l y so as not to overfill.  I think the last time he rushed and maybe got overconfident and overfilled one side.  He also just really didn't seem to have a feel for how a women's hips should look.  I am sorry that I did not seek out the female doctor, but I chose him for price and that he claimed to have hips experience.  I also have hard nodules.  PMMA is terrific, but it works best under a muscle.  Put directly under skin as on the hips and you will see the outline of an implant there and it will form bumps and lumps probably to some degree no matter who you go to or maybe there is someone so skilled as to prevent this.  It is a tough area to fill and I will give him that, but I can see from how well one side came out that he could have had the talent to make the other side come out a lot better than it did.  Then when I asked him about it, he actually had the nerve to blame me for the mishap because I pressured him to fill more when he felt it should not be done.  But ultimately I was the patient and he was the doctor and if he trully felt no more filler could go there then he could have simply refused.  But he AGREED to do that last visit and so now to blame me for rushing thru it and slopping it up really just addes insult to injury for me. I'm the one stuck with this now.  I just wanted him to add a little bit if that was all he could do. I did not want a bump on my hip that he gave me.  I would have listened to reason. We could have worked this out with some more converation and time.  He wanted to please me and after screwing it up, coming up with a way to fix it would have been appreciated over yelling at me that it was my fault and now banning me from the practice.  So I'm not saying don't fill the hips, but go really slow.  If you get close to where you want to be, consider if you would be happy with it like that and not risk overfilling. I really just wanted to even it out a little bit and he went and just pumped a bunch into one spot creating the unnecessary bulge.  I think it was not that I wanted more filler, but that he lost his artistic way.  I think hips was not his forte.  Butts he does awsome and faces too, but hips he really needs to think out more as it is not just some lump or bulge on the side of a woman's body.

Wow. I had forgotten about this post. Reading your post, jenfronzen, really suprised me because I think you are the first to ever mention this "hip" problem issue on the pmma topic. Still, it is a good thing to take into consideration when anyone is about to do hip fillings. Thanks for sharing your experience.

I don't know if the implants complicate injections, could be.
To fill in the lost fat and muscle I use SitRelief Shorts.
Now I can sit almost anywhere comfortably.
