We all want to look our best. Sometimes, that means going to extremes of plastic surgery. For many procedures, there’s a low risk of complications; but the Multi-Society Task Force for Safety in Gluteal Fat Grafting discovered a frightening reality with one specific surgery.
According to the task force, the Brazilian butt lift is in the running for deadliest cosmetic procedure on the market. The surgery, which involves liposuctioning fat from other areas and injecting it into the butt, has an estimated death rate of 1 in 3,000 patients. Abdominoplasty, or a tummy tuck, is the next deadliest at a rate of approximately 1 in 13,000.
