A mom of 3 has actually passed away after apparently taking a trip to Turkey for a kind of plastic surgery referred to as the “Brazilian butt lift” (BBL). Why is this treatment significantly popular and is it more harmful to have the operation abroad?

“If fat is injected deep into muscle tissue and lower down on the butts, there is a threat of improperly injecting fat into big veins.
“The fat, now an embolus, can circulate the blood stream, into the lungs and trigger death.”

The death rate following the treatment was discovered to be 1 in 3,000 and all the deadly cases examined included fat emboli being discovered in the butt muscle, he states.
The cosmetic surgeon states he has actually discovered an increase in the variety of bottom-boosting operations at his Cadogan Clinic in Chelsea, west London, in the previous 4 years.
“It’s a present trend,” he discusses. “Years ago everybody wished to be smaller sized and they would be stating ‘can we have liposuction to make [my bottom] smaller sized?'”
And that is the strategy that would be utilized if the “bubble butt” heads out of style and BBL clients desire the treatment reversed, he states.
