Is aquafilling filler safe for breast injection?
In my country, There are some hospitals injecting aquafilling filler for breast augmentation.
They say it lasts 5~8 years, and that it's mainly made up of molecules similar to water.
I would like to hear from doctors outside my country. Thank you.

As a general rule, no filler is safe in the breast.
The only stuff you can inject is fat.
For anything else you need surgery.

I feel it is not safe to inject those substances
Safest would be the fat injection
There are no convincing evidence to support for injecting any other substance other than fat

Hello oliviean,
with all fillers,apart from your own fat (by Lipofilling) there is a cardinal question of long term results/problems especially concerning breast cancer.In this respect no sufficient data are available.That is why I would be very careful with injectible fillers into the breast.
Furthermore as far as I know aquafilling is not FDA-approved in the United States up to now.
Kind regards,

The only safe filler is fat, if you need breast augmentation use implants.

Dear Dr Petra Berger,
Aquafilling is made in Europe and it is used in most european countries. It is a hydrogel who's only risk is for infections (if the injection point is not corectly treated by the patient post-intervention).
