If you’re even slightly interested in a Brazilian Butt Lift procedure, which you probably are since you’re reading this post, then we’re sure you’ve seen too many warnings and cautionary tales about the dangers of BBLS to count.


We won’t sugarcoat anything here—BBLS can be a deadly procedure, but it’s earned that title for reasons that might be different than you think. So before you jump to conclusions or ward off this procedure for good, let us point you to three reasons why BBLS can be risky so you know what to look for (and avoid) when it’s time to book your consultation: 


  1. Opting for cheaper care can result in less than quality care. 

If there’s one thing you shouldn’t go the cheaper route for, it’s a serious surgical procedure. Many women may decide to travel to other countries where it’s more affordable to receive the surgery. Still, when they do this, they compromise things like quality aftercare and their own safety in the process. 


  1. Some surgeons are not qualified or trained on safe BBL procedures. 

The main reason why BBLs are so deadly is that some doctors mistakenly inject fat into the gluteal muscles, which may sound correct in theory, but it’s a mistake that can cost you your life. 


The gluteal muscle contains blood vessels, and when fat is injected into these muscles, it’s at risk of traveling directory to the heart and into the lungs, which can obstruct blood flow and result in death. 


Here at New Life, Dr. Lee takes extra measures to avoid the risk of a pulmonary embolism. For example, he never injects fat anywhere near the buttocks muscles and avoids veins by placing the fat right underneath the skin. If you have questions about your surgeon’s technique, don’t be afraid to ask during your consultation! 


  1. You should always find a board-certified surgeon with a positive reputation. 

Working with a sketchy surgeon is never worth your life, so the best way to avoid the risks of a BBL surgery is to find a surgeon who is adequately trained on BBLS and board certified. 


At New Life Cosmetic Surgery and Wellness Center, there have been zero deaths due to a BBL procedure, and the risk of a pulmonary embolism using the technique Dr. Lee uses for BBLs is approximately 1 in 20,000.
