British ban Brazilian butts

Well, not really butt it made for better alliteration in the title. The British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAPPS) has advised surgeons to stop performing Brazilian butt lift procedures (BBLs) due to the incidence of serious complications, including death. For the BBL ignorant among us, the elective procedure involves removing fat from one part of a person’s body and injecting it into that person’s rear end to alter its size and shape. BAPPS suggests the procedure has the highest death rate in all of plastic surgery—approximately 1 in 3,000 procedures. Problems often arise as newly injected fat cells enter the blood vessels that surround the injection areas, causing “fat embolisms.” Ick. According to CNN the demand for BBLs has more than doubled in the past 5 years, which only proves that Sir Mix-A-Lot was decades ahead of his time (WARNING: 80s/90s hip-hop is a bit crude—but pretty awesome).
