In a recent article, women have been turning to the black market for silicone butt injects and at least 2 deaths have arisen from complications by botched butt jobs. To learn more you can read the whole article on Cosmetic Butt Injections by 2 Investigators.  


 

“CHICAGO (CBS) — More than a dozen deaths have been reported across the country of women undergoing cosmetic injections to have a more curvaceous figure. Now, CBS 2 investigator Pam Zekman looks at why a seemingly simple cosmetic procedure known as butt injections can go so wrong. It happens when unqualified people, under non-sterile conditions use unapproved fillers to inject into the buttocks of patients. The patients are in search of a curvy figure like many celebrities display on the red carpet these days.


 

Having a plump backside is not a problem…here are the safe ways to ensure your best behind.

  1. See your plastic surgeon…If the doctor is not a board certified plastic surgeon, just back away!!!
  2. Fat grafting is safer and is our procedure of choice.
  3. A safe and sterile environment means that there is less possibility of infections and complications.

As always, seek a medical professional for help. Don’t ruin your perfectly good decision by going to someone who is not trained and doesn’t care about your long term health.

A prospective patient would research the qualifications of the doctor doing the work. “Plastic surgeons we consulted say they should be board certified plastic surgeons.” CBS Correspondents encourage. You can find board certified doctors by checking these websites:

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons. 
The American Board of Plastic Surgery.
