COMESTIC surgeries have become increasingly popular among young people with increasing pressure from social media.
While the results may seem glamorous, the effects can be fatal.
What is the most dangerous cosmetic surgery?
The Brazilian butt lift, or BBL, has been cited as having the highest death rate for any cosmetic procedure, with up to one in 3,000 patients dying as a result of the surgery according to cosmetic surgery lawyers.
The procedure consists of removing fatty deposits from one part of the body and injecting this fat into the buttocks, so that the buttocks appear more “full” and “firm”.
If performed improperly, fat or fillers can enter any of the major blood vessels, resulting in fatal pulmonary embolism.
Since 2015, the number of buttock facelifts performed worldwide has increased by 77.6%, according to a recent poll by the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
According to local reports, in the past few years, 15 women have died from BBL in South Florida alone.
Typically, this surgery can cost between $ 3,000 and $ 30,000.
What is the BBL effect?
The trend became popular thanks to celebrities and influencers who had the surgery.
Dr Mark Mofid, one of the leading American surgeons at BBL, cited Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez and Nicki Minaj as a few celebrities who “had really popularized the beauty of feminine curves”.
The growing popularity of the Brazilian butt lift has seen a growing number of TikTok users spend thousands of dollars to achieve that sought-after hourglass figure.
OnlyFans model and TikTok star Christine Anne told the platform that BBL “recovery is not glamorous” and that surgery is “not an easy way out.”
In his video, Christine Anne revealed that she underwent two of these procedures to achieve the body shape she wanted.
As she appeared wrapped in thick body bandages and compression garments, she wrote: “Looking like a marshmallow in compression garments, foams, pads, etc.
“I drink water every second of the day.
“Only can be without compression garments for at least an hour a day for a massage and a shower, because when they remove your fat, your skin and muscles have space between them, so you have to compress them to help them stick together. “
Teen Mom 2 fans will know that Jade Cline underwent the same procedure earlier this year and she described it as “worse than childbirth.”
Some terrifying scenes in the current season showed the mother of an almost unrecognizable child as she was swollen throughout the procedure as she had removed the fat from her neck and stomach.
She was also rushed back to the hospital a few hours after her initial discharge because she could not tolerate the pain.
