British Surgeons Warned Not to Perform Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery

October 4, 2018

(CNN) – UK surgeons were strongly warned this week by the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons to stop performing Brazilian butt lifts. The organization warns that “risky” Brazilian butt lifts, sometimes called BBLs, have the highest death rate of all cosmetic surgery procedures — estimated to be as high as 1 in 3,000 operations — and often result in costly emergency complications. This year, two women in the UK have died from the procedure, according to the BBC.
