One of the fastest growing trends in plastic surgery, the “Brazilian Butt Lift” (fat transfer to the buttocks), has an alarming death rate as high as 1 in 3,000 from fat embolism when fat is injected into the buttock muscle. A multi-society task force of plastics surgeons issued a formal warning about the procedure.
Houstonian and board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bob Basu served as past chair of the patient safety committee for the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). He urges those seeking this procedure to find a reputable board-certified plastic surgeon before making your decision.
