COMESTIC surgery procedures have become increasingly popular among young people with social media pressures mounting.
While the results may seem glamorous, the effects can be deadly.
Quelle est la chirurgie esthétique la plus dangereuse?
The Brazilian Butt Lift, or BBL, has been cited as having the highest rate of death for any aesthetic procedure, with as many as one in 3,000 patients dying as a result of the surgery according to Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors.
The procedure involves removing fat deposits from one part of the body and injecting this fat into the buttocks, in order for the butt to appear more “full” et “firm.”
If performed incorrectly, fat or fillers can enter one of the major blood vessels, resulting in a fatal pulmonary embolism.
Depuis 2015, the number of butt lifts performed globally has grown by 77.6%, selon un recent survey by the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
Selon local reports, in recent years, 15 women have died after BBLs in south Florida alone.
Typiquement, this surgery can cost anywhere between $3,000 à $30,000.
What is the BBL effect?
The trend has grown popular thanks to celebrities and influencers who have undergone the surgery.
Dr Mark Mofid, a leading American BBL surgeon, cited Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez and Nicki Minaj as just a few celebrities who “had really popularized the beauty of feminine curves.”
The skyrocketing popularity of the Brazilian butt lift has seen an increasing number of TikTok users spending thousands of dollars to get that sought-after hourglass figure.
OnlyFans model and TikTok star Christine Anne said on the platform that the BBL “recovery is not glamorous” and that the surgery is “not an easy way out.”
Dans her video, Christine Anne revealed she’s had two of these procedures done to obtain the body shape she wanted.
As she showed herself wrapped in thick body bandages and compression shape wear, elle a écrit: “Looking like a marshmallow in compression garments, foams, pads, etc.
“Chugging water every second of the day.
“Only can be out of compression garments for at MOST an hour a day for a massage and shower because when they remove your fat, your skin and muscle have space between it so you have to compress it to help it stick together.”

Some terrifying scenes from the current season showed the mom of one almost unrecognizable as she was swollen throughout following the procedure as she had fat removed from her neck and her stomach.
She was also rushed back to the hospital hours after being initially discharged as she was unable to tolerate the pain.
