Brazilian Butt Lift Buzz: How to Get It the Safe Way

With the rise in Brazilian Butt Lifts and other buttock augmentations, an unfortunate byproduct is back alley procedures that often result in severe consequences and even death. It’s a sad and important reminder that cosmetic surgeries should only be done in a certified operating room by a certified plastic surgeon. Here few of the incorrect things that lead to the deaths that have made headlines:
- Industrial grade silicone (silicone caulk), which can be bought at any hardware store, is definitely not the same type of silicone doctors use in their offices, as Dr. Arthur Perry, author of Straight Talk About Cosmetic Surgery said on Good Morning America earlier today. “I prefer to buy my medical supplies at medical supply houses.”
- Even if medical grade silicone was used, Brazilian butt lifts are typically done with a fat transfer.
- Many of the damaging surgeries were performed by lay people, not doctors, and not in a certified operating room. Even if it's cheaper upfront, you can pay a much different - and much worse - price down the road!
For more on the correct way the surgery should be performed, watch Dr. Pat Pazmino on the Today Show discuss the Brazilian butt lift with two of his satisfied patients and read what RealSelf community members have to say about their own experiences with the Brazilian butt lift.
