Risks of Brazilian butt lift

The risks of Brazilian butt lift include creating a butt that is too small or too large, contour irregularities, liposuction of too much or too little fat, failure of the fat grafts to take, asymmetry, and need for more surgery.   There are also risks that pertain to any surgery such as the risks of anesthesia, bleeding, blood clots, etc..  Fortunately, if you pick a board certified plastic surgeon, these risks are minimal and complications are very rare.

What are the risks of the BBL?

The BBl is the preferred and safest technique for buttock enhancement. The most important point to note is that because you are dealling with fat grafting there is the possibilty that you may need a second procedure. Bleeding, infection and irregularities are not common. But your plastic surgeon will review with you the possible complications in more detail. As a caution, I would suggest that you consult with a Board Certified plastic surgeon with extensive experience with the BBL. Good luck!
