Plastic Surgery Societies Issue Warning about Increased Risks Associated with Brazilian Buttock Lift

What is a BBL? BBL or Brasilian Buttock Lift is a type of buttock augmentation procedure found by a Brasilian doctor, where the fat from your abdominal area is taken (from the flanks, abdomen, back and thighs) and after the extracted fat is purified and prepared for transfer, it is injected back to your buttock, giving you a Kim Kardashian look. This treatment is very popular among women all over the world in the last couple of years. A healthy diet and exercise can work to achieve a healthy body weight and tone the muscles, but many patients remain unhappy with a “flat” buttocks that lack shape, despite a healthy lifestyle. But, it seems that you have to think twice when deciding to undergo this procedure.

BBL seems to be the most dangerous surgery with the rate of mortality around 1:3000. A couple of plastic surgery associations in the USA formed the council on this topic, Task Force for Safety in Gluteal Fat Grafting, with the goal of conducting studies to develop specific safety guidelines.
What makes this surgery more dangerous from the other surgeries is the fact that the fat is injected in the buttock, whereas the fat sometimes enters into the vascular system where thrombus or fatty necrosis may occur. Also, with the rise of requests for this procedure, the number of non-board-certified and non-plastic surgeon raised.

Some women also complain about the infections and deformations after this surgery. You have to bear in mind that even the most experienced surgeon is not guaranteeing for this kind of procedure. This procedure is dangerous by itself, though you can imagine how risky it could be when non-plastic surgeon performs it.
The recovery period after this procedure is very long. You are not able to sit for a couple of weeks and lay on your back for months. Also, this procedure is not suitable for women with a low percentage of body fat. We always warn our patients to be careful when deciding to have cosmetic surgery, but you have to be even more careful when deciding to undergo this procedure.
