GORDILLO-HERNANDEZ, J. et al. Multidisciplinary management of adjuvant human disease by injection of modeling substances. Cir. plást. iberolatinoam. [online]. 2013, vol.39, n.3, pp.269-277. ISSN 1989-2055.

In seeking to improve the appearance of the body and face for cosmetic or reconstructive purposes for any deformity, non-surgical techniques have appeared consisting on the injection of various modeling substances, under the premise that they are simple methods, painless, economic and apparently safe. Nowadays society requires a greater concern with aesthetic standards, has led this practice to increase the frequent application of illegal substances in order to enhance the volume and shape in certain parts of the body without undergoing surgical procedures. The ignorance that exists in some countries like Mexico and others in Latin-America, has meant that the number of patients attending with untrained personnel and unauthorized sites has increased, regardless of that cause irreversible damage to their physical health, self-esteem and finally their future quality of life. The Services of Plastic Surgery and Rheumatology, at General Hospital of Mexico have been pioneers in the comprehensive and multidisciplinary human modeling disease, expanding the knowledge of the natural history of the disease, the proper medical and surgical treatment, as well as its prognosis. The main objective of this paper is to focus all this information in a systematic management protocol. We did a research on the files of the Plastic Surgery Department "Dr. Fernando Ortiz Monasterio ¨ at General Hospital of Mexico. This search covers 35 patients obtaining data from 2006 to 2010, and demonstrating the importance of diagnosing these patients, keeping a tight handling, explaining step by step process of his illness, multidisciplinary management, forecast and if the patient must be candidate for a reconstructive procedure or continue with medical treatment.
