If the injections are toxic and travel to a different area of the body through the bloodstream, say to the lungs or even the heart, it can result in serious health issues.
Woodbury, NY / Manhattan, NY / Southampton, NY (PRWEB) May 08, 2012
Illegal “Plumping Parties,” where people gather at homes to have their buttocks plumped up with injectable substances, are happening across the country. Disturbing reports such as those on ABC News (http://abcnews.go.com/Health/Wellness/ana-josefa-sevilla-arrested-butt-augmentation-injections/story?id=11665963) reveal that people are being injected with toxic substances, like Fix-a-Flat tire sealant, mineral oil, cement and superglue, to obtain a fuller backside. And subsequent hospitalizations and arrests have been appearing in the press on a regular basis.
Leading cosmetic surgeon Dr. Stephen T. Greenberg warns that this type of procedure, administered by unqualified individuals, is not safe and can lead to disfiguration and even death. “If the injections are toxic and travel to a different area of the body through the bloodstream, say to the lungs or even the heart, it can result in serious health issues.”
Dr. Greenberg has done countless Brazilian Butt Lifts, the only buttocks augmentation procedure he offers at his fully accredited ambulatory center. “The Brazilian Butt Lift is safe and effective; we remove fat cells from selected areas of the body, purify it in a centrifuge, and then re-inject selected donor fat cells to achieve a rounder look. The procedure takes about a half hour and is designed to fill the upper quadrant of the buttocks, so that it appears lifted and perky. The size varies for every patient, and there is no way to know how long the results will last, it could be a short time or it could be nearly permanent."
The veteran surgeon suggests that anyone looking to have any aesthetic procedure should not choose a doctor based on price; Injectables are pharmaceutical products and must be administered by trained, qualified clinicians. While the cost of “Plumping Party” injections may cost only $1,000, the person may have to find a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon to try to rectify the damage done to their body.
“It is possible to achieve well-rounded rear-end safely, but your first step is to choose the right provider. It is important to make sure your clinician is using only FDA-approved products purchased within the United States,” explains Dr. Greenberg. “If they refuse to give you this information, seek another clinician immediately.”
