Women Are Dying For Bigger Butts, 33 Have Died On Surgical Table In 5 Years (Pics)

Women from across the globe are dying from complications of Brazilian butt lift operations, prompting an international task force of plastic surgeons to warn against the procedure.

Driven to fame by the likes of Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner, plastic surgeons performed 18,487 such 'butt lifts' in 2015.

But the procedures comes with serious risks.

For 30-year-old Lattia Baumeister, a butt lift was deadly.

She died on the operating table in Florida, leaving her six children in Illinois motherless.

She was one of least 33 people have died in the last five years in the US because fat transferred to their butts caused deadly embolisms, and a special task force is now warning surgeons that the way they learned to do the operation may be deadly.
 
Lattia Baumeister (1st) died of a fat embolism after a Brazilian butt lift in June of last year.  

 
Lidvian Zelaya (2nd), from New York, suffered the same fate after getting the lift in Florida.

In the last five years, plastic surgeons have seen a 150 percent increase in the Brazilian butt lift business.

Plastic surgery, as a field, is fairly low risk, with average mortality rates across all such procedures hovering around one in 55,000.

But some surgeries are far more dangerous than others.

Traditionally, plastic surgeons consider the tummy tuck one of the riskiest procedures they do, with about a four percent risk of major complications.

That procedure is complex and invasive, and patients are at risk for developing blood clots that travel up to the heart and can quickly turn deadly.

When plastic surgeons inject transferred fat into the muscles of the butt, there is a high risk that a glob of the fat will get into the inferior or superior gluteal veins and travel to the lungs.



For the procedure, a surgeon suctions excess fat from one part of a patient's body and transfers it to the buttocks via injection.

'It really requires relatively little technical finesse,' says Dr Mark Mofid, a San Diego-based plastic surgeon.


HOW IT WORKS:

1. Liposuction to remove fat from abdomen/hips/thighs.

2. Fat is 'processed'.

3. Fat is injected into buttocks.

HOW TO PREPARE:

*. Don't smoke (increases infection risk and blood clot risk).

*. Don't gain weight (when you lose it again, your butt will change).


RECOVERY:

1. Don't work for 10 days.

2. Don't sit for 6 weeks.

3. Sleep on stomach.

4. Final shape will take months or a year to form.
