How Macrolane Really Works

You may be considering Macrolane as an alternative to surgery to enhance your body's silhouette. The process is less invasive and doesn't carry with it the risks associated with surgery under general anesthesia. As well, it can result in a more natural-looking result than saline or silicone implants.

Macrolane is a thick, clear gel made of hyaluronic acid, a substance which occurs naturally in the body. Unlike implants which are permanent, unless surgically extracted, Macrolane is not. Like Restylane and Juvederm for filling facial wrinkles, Macrolane is temporary. It is metabolized by the body gradually within a year or so. Repeat procedures or top-ups are required to maintain the desired appearance, at 12 to 18 month intervals.

The whole procedure should take about 30 to 60 minutes. It is performed on an outpatient basis with no hospital stay required. The injection site is numbed with a local anesthetic. A small incision is made in the area into which the Macrolane will be injected. The thick, dense gel is slowly injected into the area. Some stinging from the anesthetic, or a pulling or tugging sensation as the gel is placed, is normal. After the procedure you may feel some tightening of the skin as it stretches to make room for the gel. Redness, swelling or bruising at the injection site, are not uncommon. You should be able to return to normal activity almost immediately with the exception of strenuous exercise or sports.

The best use for Macrolane is to enhance nature, not replace it. For example, application of Macrolane to the breasts gives a fuller, rounder appearance than before the procedure. Sagging and unevenness are reduced. One half to one full cup size increase is achievable. Macrolane can also be used for a buttocks lift, to achieve the youthful roundness that age and gravity take away. Smoothing out the baggy appearance left by liposuction is another practical application.

If you do your homework, you’ll find that scientific testing has shown Macrolane to be safe. If you are considering surgical implants, before you decide, consider Macrolane to see if you can achieve the same results with less cost, physical discomfort and personal downtime. As with any medical procedure, being fully informed will help you know what to expect and how to get the best results from your Macrolane treatment.
