Removal of Injected Substances
Correcting Post Injections in Sugar Land
When a patient has had something mysterious injected into their body it can create a host of anxieties and health risks. The person administering the injection may have had zero medical knowledge or even basic clinical training. Dr. Kutty has seen numerous patients at Luxe Plastic Surgery with problems resulting from injections and has developed a variety of techniques to treat them.
What Went Wrong?
Many specialists who market and administer injections don’t have to be board-certified or licensed in a hospital or medical practice. Some of the materials used for injection can be substances that are harmful to the body.
Other common injection complications include:
- The type of material used doesn’t stay exactly where it was originally injected. It can migrate to nearby areas and cause serious medical problems.
- Substances administered from an injector’s house are much more likely to cause infections and, when this happens, it’s virtually impossible to control because bacteria are harbored in tough spots.
- Such materials cause profuse scarring under the surface, as well as on the overlying skin itself, leading to a major distortion of body parts.
- Some patients develop chronic, systemic inflammatory conditions that require continuous treatment with antibiotics and steroids.
The Removal Process
Dr. Kutty’s approach is conservative. He believes the safest way to approach removing injections is to proceed with a plan for multiple stages. When a lot of material has been injected, it tends to collect as a discrete pocket. Trying to remove substances all at once leaves major deformities, fluid collections, infections, and a lot of other problems. It takes careful planning to improve appearance or alleviate symptoms without creating new problems.
