These days, people are more becoming more and more conscious about the way they look. They are looking for ways like exercise and diet. However, due to the busy schedules, most turn into different cosmetic surgeries that are available on the market. But because some can’t afford the cause, they tend to get injected with illegal products such as the silicone.
Silicone comes in many forms. There is the medical grade silicone that is used augmentation surgeries and there are those that you can buy at Home Depot. If you’re interested to improve your body, I’m sure you have heard about death secondary to black-market silicone injection. The cases are alarming. So if you’re planning to enhance your body by getting injected with illegal products, then you might want to think again after reading this.
Even if you have already undergone illegal silicone injection, you can’t still be sure that you are already free from complications. One of the most common complications that is associated with this illegal method is called silicone granumola.
Once a foreign object is injected to the body, you can develop a condition called granumola. This is the natural reaction of the body against the foreign material, whether it is injected or it is an implant. It creates a scar formation with inflammation around it. If a significant amount is injected to the body, especially in the hips or the buttocks, this can result to multiple granumolas. It triggers pain, extrusion of silicone, loss of skin, embolism, fat necrosis and worst, death.
Even if a couple of years had passed, you still can’t be sure that you are safe. There are cases where the mentioned complications occurred years after the illegal injection. So in order for you to save yourself in the long run, make sure to seek the help of professional surgeons that are licensed to perform such procedures.
