The Dangerous Reality of Underground Silicone Injections to the Butt and Hips

Dr. Kenneth Hughes Faces the Aftermath of These Silicone Injections to the Butt and Hips Every Day
By: Dr. Kenneth Hughes
LOS ANGELES - May 2, 2021 - PRLog -- The world of underground, illegal silicone and biopolymer injections is real and booming. People by the thousands have sacrificed themselves and their health for low cost remedies for butt and hip augmentation.  These injections should not performed by plastic surgeons or doctors of any sort.  None of these injections of silicone or hydrogel or biopolymers have been approved by the FDA for butt augmentation.

Of the hundreds of patients that Dr. Kenneth Hughes has treated, patient symptoms and concerns are wide-ranging.  Some have had infections and continue to struggle with infections even after previous attempts at removal.  Many have worsening swelling and redness that can generate pain and hardness of the tissues preventing sitting and resting as well as walking.  As the tissues worsen, the deformities worsen and the ability of the tissue to heal is compromised.  These removal surgeries are not straightforward and there are no easy answers or treatment paradigms.

The injected material, though many times in liquid form when injected, becomes hardened by tissue response and prevents easy removal by any sort of suction paradigm.  Thus, incisions are utilized to not only evaluate the condition of the tissues but provide for direct visualization and removal of the injected materials.  The material can be at varying depths and, in some patients, only amputation of the affected tissue is a reasonable alternative.  These scenarios are frightening for the patients and daunting for the plastic surgeon.  Even when the vast majority of the material is removed above the level of the muscle, patients may continue to have long-term negative consequences from these injections and may need additional operations for removal or treatment of infection.  This is not even considering the need for reconstruction.
