What Could Be the Worst Results from a Brazilian Buttock Augmentation?

I Was just wondering what the risks would be if I got this surgery. I'm 5' and weigh 115 and my measurements are 36-25-37. How much pounds do I neeed to gain for the surgery?

Patients can experience infection or abscess formation of fat cells that do not survive; this is perhaps the worst complication from the procedure.It is very rare and may require additional surgery to treat it. The worst medical complication from the surgery is a blood clot (deep vein thrombosis) which could form in the lower extremities and lead to a pulmonary embolus. This is also quite rare, 1-2%.


I recommend consulting with a board certified plastic surgeon for an in person evaluation and more detailed information.


With regard to your specific case, I would recommend gaining perhaps 10 pounds before surgery in order to have a better cosmetic outcome. Again, this is something your plastic surgeon can give you more information about during your consultation.
