Bioplasty is a biomodeling technique, without incisions or scars; it is an aesthetic procedure performed under local anesthesia, using a soft tissue filler (expander) based on polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) microspheres which is instilled inside anatomical planes through a puncture using a blunt microcannula.
Bioplasty was created by Dr. Almir Moojen Nácul, in Brazil in the 90s but both technique and filling product have been further enhanced and upgraded since then.
Bioplasty as a Minimally Invasive Aesthetic Procedure, lies between Plastic Surgery and Aesthetic Medicine.
PMMA microspheres are suspended in a gel made of carboxymethylcellulose which is a biocompatible and slowly biodegradable substance that acts as a vehicle for the microspheres as well as providing a cushioned and friendly environment for microspheres to be implanted.
Carboxymethylcellulose also provides an immediate tissue expansion; as time goes by microspheres create a scaffold for new tissue growth alike the one produced by the human body.
Adipose tissues lost by aging, diets or diseases are restored, achieving a very natural rejuvenation both at facial and gluteal level.
Being that latest generation soft tissue expanders are used in conjunction with blunt microcannulas, Bioplasty, in the correct hands, is totally safe and lesser traumatic and aggressive than surgical procedures; it leaves no bruises or scars allowing a virtually instantaneous recovery.
Most common areas to be treated with Bioplasty are face, lips, chin, nose, cheekbones, nasolabial folds, hands and glutes.
Bioplasty for areas such as pectorals, biceps, triceps or calves lacks medical consensus for its performance. We do not recommend it.
