Endotine has ruined my life
It has been 11 years since my endotine browlift and the horrible itching and pain continues on my scalp and head. I know that these endotine clips DID NOT absorb or dissolve in my scalp and I am sure they have broken all apart in my head. They say they are suppose to dissolve in less than 6 months, but I feel that mine have not dissolved. I know it would cause more harm to remove all these pieces because I feel like they have traveled back farther in my head. If anyone out there has any advice, or knows a doctor that could help me, please contact me noblevan2@***.com. Thank you so much!

Warning, severe trouble with midface Endotine
I had a facelift 9 months ago that included a midface cheek lift with endotines. My life has been complete *** ever since. After the swelling went down it was obvious the fat pad was in fact not lifted and after 3 months the device had not dissolved as I was told it would. I went to two new surgeons at 5 months who both confirmed immediately that the endotine had not worked, did not lift my cheek and yes, now my body had to try and dissolve this foreign object that it was having a bad reaction to. Instead of it dissolving as the months went on, it seemed to be getting more there. I had severe abdominal pains in my left side only a month after the surgery, I didn't connect it and ultrasound showed no problem. I started becoming very weak and could not walk on my feet when I'd get up in the morning, I started having severe migraines. The first months the endotines would start itching like crazy, open sores on my temples and above my ears would have gummy substance and bits of white plastic flakes come out that would scab over. I thought atleast my body was getting rid of it. Every two weeks it seemed I would go through this routine, the severe pain and migraines, itching, scabbing, etc. But at month 8 things changed, it started becoming more and more painful causing me a lot of distress, I felt trapped with these poisonous very painful devices from my ears to my temples and the migraines became worse like vice grips I can feel doing more and more damage. You cannot escape or get them out. Knowing these *** things didn't even work and now are hurting me 24 hours a day has me almost suicidal sometimes. I want to warn everyone, do NOT get any Endotine device for any procedure. It is not worth the risk and both Drs. I saw said they never use them anymore because they just don't work. Apparently they do dissolve eventually for some people but in my case I believe they are only gathering scar tissue on top of them and I am going to have to find someone to remove these. I am very scared. Please do not get these horrible things. I was told they were plant based but my guess is they are genetically engineered corn based. I am looking into legal remedies. Thank you.

A Very Big Mistake!
I was injected with two full syringes of Novielle Plus in June 2009 and the nightmare continues two years later. After four surgeries to remove large painful nodules, 10 still remain and it will take many more surgeries to remove them. However, removal is leaving my face scarred and looking worse than when we began. At least the nodules stop hurting once they're removed. This was one of the biggest mistakes of my life and now I have to live with a condition that is much worse than the one I originally tried to correct. I'd love to know what other victims have done to remove this product. pvlham@***.com

Novielle promoted by Coapt Systems as a Dermal Facial Filler without FDA approved.
One year ago, I was injected with Novielle filler that was compared to a safe and well known FDA approved product. Within weeks, the Coapt Systems asked physicians for the product back. Several of us throughout the country have experience severe response and permanent damage. These side effects remain after one year and are beyond normal for this procedure and include: rubber like nodules under the skin, scarring, skin retraction, pitting, skin swelling, product migration, itching, discoloration - appears bruised and/or increased redness, blood filled nodules, pain, tenderness, numbness and infection for superficial injections such as under the eyes. Coapt Systems did not disclose the appropriate information to the physician, marketed and sold Novielle Gel and Novielle Gel Plus off label and therefore I hold my physician harmless. The FDA is aware. If you are interested in speaking further, please leave a comment below. I have a personal injury attorney which does not require money up front if this helps.
