PMMA Penis Enlargement
Why is PMMA & Some Other Fillers Bad?
What is PMMA? It is polymethylmethacrylate — also know as poly-methylmethacrylate or polymethyl methacrylate.
Regardless of risk, penile dysmorphic disorder has driven some men to get inadvisable penis enlargement using PMMA injected into their penis in Mexico, Brazil and other places.
Although it has supposedly been “in common medical use for half a century”, a Google search will result in no clear definition and no other medical use.
Most importantly, PMMA IS reported to be “irreversible and may have side effects including loss of sensation, inability to perform penetrative intercourse, scarring and deformation.”
Do you really need to know any more? Avoid it! PMMA is a bad idea.
It is plastic. It is a processed polymer derived from oil — petroleum. It is used to make transparent plastic like Plexiglass. Do you really want plastic in your penis?
Impure, Adulterated, Expensive, Dangerous!
It can be difficult and costly for a doctor to get a pure form of PMMA. It has been reported that criminal gangs in Europe have imported cheap forms of PMMA from China, diluted it to 1% of original purity and distributed it widely.
That diluted form of the cheap PMMA is nasty stuff and it is everywhere. It produces a very bad result for the patient regardless of the doctor or the part of the person's anatomy where it is used. Some reports claim it is a carcinogen.
Top quality PMMA from Germany costs at least US$200/ml — one milliliter — and it would take at least 20 ml to get a visually obvious result (US$4000), perhaps 30-40 ml (US$8000). That is only the cost to the doctor, not your price and does not include the doctor's fee.
If the price quoted to you is significantly lower, ask yourself: “How can that be?”
Dr Kim does not and will not use PMMA in any form — not Metacrill, not Linnear Safe, not Artefill.
He advises patients to choose superior alternative materials which are much safer for volumization and contouring such as MegaFill (scaffold) or Cutegel ULTRA HA. (filler).
Other Inadvisable Off-label Fillers
Dr Jayson Oates of Australia reports: Use of inadvisable products for permanent penis enlargement can “lead to significant complications, infections, grotesque deformity, amputation and, in some cases, death.”
In addition to “unsightly and painful disfigurement”, other possible consequences include: “hardening and forming large disfiguring nodules that can be very difficult to correct, even with surgery.”
Those are the reasons Dr Kim uses only time-tested fillers and scaffolds DESIGNED and INTENDED for penis enlargement that consistently get satisfactory results the vast majority of the time for most patients. He wants high patient satisfaction and a safe outcome with minimal potential adverse events.
He does not use Aquamid® (polyacrylamide hydrogel, 97.5% water).He does not use Lipen 10.
And he does not use Ellansé® (70% carboxymethyl cellulose based gel carrier and 30% polycaprolactone microspheres) for penis enlargement.
Because Korean doctors know well about its off-label use for penile girth enhancement.
They report: “엘란쎄는 유착을 심하게 일으킬수 있어서 음경 모양의 변형 및 유착으로 발기시 통증도 일으킬수 있습니다.”
[Ellansé can cause severe adhesions, which can lead to pain during erection due to penile deformation and adhesion.]
That means the unapproved, unintended, off-label use for penis enlargement can create a result similar to Peyronie's Disease.
Korean cosmetic surgeons who are friends of Dr Kim tell him that Ellansé used on faces often causes a hard consistency lumping phenomenon: “엘란쎄 시술 하시는 원장님들 중에는 딱딱하게 뭉치는 증상 때문에 고생하시는 분들이 많던데”
[Many people are suffering from the symptoms of hardness following Ellansé treatment.]
These cases are actively being collected and compiled to launch protests against Ellansé.
When manufacturers brag about the great results being achieved using fillers, you will always find the disclaimer: “Individual results may vary.”
Videos of “actual cases” are 88% animated simulations showing magical results with dramatic soundtracks — not real. Don't jump to conclusions based on slick marketing materials.
Dr Kim concludes:
Ellanse is not an advisable material for penile augmentations.
Dr Kim's response to patients who want to use any medically inadvisable filler for penile girth enhancement:
I don't want to make you unhappy although you promise to pay me. Please forget my name.
