Although Bellafill is becoming increasingly popular, many still wonder whether it is an implant or a filler. This is a reasonable question. The active ingredient in Bellafill is polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA), which has been used for many years in the form of surgical implants. Because PMMA implants are accepted by the body very well, after 20 years of research and development, Bellafill has been made as an injectable filler that is sought after by many.
Bellafill is not the same as the fixed shape and size of PMMA implants that are used for surgical reasons. It has microscopic PMMA crystals suspended in a solution, and injected in an effort to stimulate the collagen production in the body. However, there isn’t a clear boundary between implant and filler. Most fillers can be thought of as small, implanted particles and many implants that are meant to fill can also be considered fillers.
Whether a material is a filler or an implant is not related to its effectiveness or safety. It is often the kind of material that the filler or implant is made of that is important. It is very important to choose a medical professional who is experienced and skilled with surgical treatments and injectables before receiving Bellafill.
Bellafill has proven to be a filler that is incredibly safe and effective, and is preferred by many patients.
