Brazilian butt lifts are growing in popularity across the United States but the surgeries are not without risks.
The surgery sculpts and contours the body by using the patient's fat taken via liposuction. That fat is then reinserted into a person's rear. Dr. John Paul Tutela attributes the rise in the popularity of the surgery to the nation becoming more culturally diverse.
Two weeks ago, a patient died in Miami from the surgery and a new report from the Aesthetic Surgery Education and Research Foundation says a patient is 20 times more likely to die after a Brazilian butt lift than after any other form of plastic surgery.
But patients are still going under the knife for it and Diana learned why.
