What Is The Most Dangerous Plastic Surgery Procedure?
By ANNE TAYLOR
One of the most popular kinds of plastic surgery right now is a Brazilian butt lift (BBL), which is achieved by harvesting fat from other parts of the body and injecting it into the buttocks, creating a coveted hourglass look. While this type of surgery can create a lovely figure, it is the riskiest option at the moment.
According to plastic surgeon Samuel Lin, MD, "Death may happen as frequently as one in every 2,351 BBLs," so the best way to avoid complications is to make sure you get your procedure done with a board-certified plastic surgeon. The biggest risk of this procedure is a fat embolism, which can occur when fat injected into the buttocks gets into the bloodstream and the lungs.
While a budget-friendly surgery may sound ideal, this will only increase your risk of a poor outcome. According to Lin, "Recommendations for these procedures should be made on an individual basis since there are many factors that would make them more or less safe."
