FDA Warns of Illegal Use of Injectable Fillers

 

Are you considering a procedure to shape or increase the size of certain parts of your body? Beware of using injectable silicone for body contouring or any other unapproved products to achieve your goals.

Injectable dermal fillers are medical devices regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Although the FDA has approved certain injectable dermal fillers for use in the face (for example, to enhance lips and cheeks) and hands, no injectable filler is FDA-approved for large-scale body contouring or body enhancement.

That means you should never get an injectable filler as a breast filler, “butt filler,” or filler for spaces between your muscles. And you should never get any type of injectable filler for large-scale body contouring or enhancement. These kinds of uses can lead to serious injury, permanent scarring or disfigurement, and even death.

If you had any of these procedures done please call our office 1-800-734-9445 and speak with an attorney that can answer any questions you may have.
