Brazilian Butt-Lift Deaths On The Rise In Florida
While everyone has their own unique opinion about certain cosmetic treatments, the truth is that everyone has a right to make decisions about their own body. Problems arise, however, when doctors are guilty of serious misconduct and medical malpractice, causing injuries and even deaths for innocent patients who trusted them. Today, a worrying trend is beginning to emerge. A vast number of individuals have been passing away due to complications from Brazilian butt-lift surgical procedures, and surgeons are beginning to experience legal consequences for these fatalities.
If you have been injured by a negligent medical professional, you should get in touch with a qualified, experienced personal injury attorney in Orlando as soon as possible.

A legal professional can help you fight for your rights, ensuring that negligent doctors and surgeons experience legitimate consequences for their misconduct. In addition, a medical malpractice lawsuit can provide you with a considerable financial settlement that covers your damages. It’s best to get in touch with a lawyer as soon as possible if you’re serious about achieving results.
A Worrying Trend
On April 11th, it was reported that a 33-year-old woman had died due to complications arising from a Brazilian butt-lift surgery. Although undeniably tragic, this was part of a much larger trend that included more than 12 deaths across the South Florida area. In fact, more people died from Brazilian butt-lifts during 2021 than in any other previous year. So why are so many people dying as a result of this surgery? Some experts say that more people are getting these cosmetic surgeries because of lifting restrictions, and this has caused a massive “surge” in new patients who want Brazilian butt-lifts. This would suggest that the death-rate is rising simply because more people are getting this procedure done.
But does that really explain it? In truth, it could be a combination of medical malpractice and a general surge in new patients. The aforementioned woman who passed away was the 7th butt-lift patient within a single day. It seems reasonable to think that the surgeon was a little tired after performing so many procedures within a 24-hour period, and that perhaps he started to make mistakes with his last patient that day. In fact, he started operating at around 6:30 AM that day and only began operating on the victim at 8:30 PM. In other words, he was operating for approximately 14 hours straight.
