The British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS) will launch a formal review of emerging new evidence into the safety and techniques used for the fat grafting procedure, the Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL).
Last year, the association advised its members to stop performing this procedure until more data could be collated. At the BAAPS Annual Scientific Meeting, which took place at CCR on October 10 and 11, leading plastic surgeons presented emerging evidence with respect to safety and techniques of buttock fat grafting. This has resulted in BAAPS undertaking a formal review that will include a survey of each of its members and examine emerging, peer-reviewed published evidence.
Aesthetic practitioner and British College of Aesthetic Medicine (BCAM) spokesperson Dr Uliana Gout supported this, “BCAM advises practitioners and patients to note the BAAPS cautionary statement regarding the BBL treatments which have had a lot of recent international publicity and interest. Patient safety is paramount to BCAM and we are aligned with BAAPS that all treatments should be backed by evidence-base to ensure safety and efficacy are optimised.”
