Aesthetic surgery is now becoming almost commonplace with more and more people following certain buzz trends, one of these trends is the Brazilian Butt Lift. Recently, the Gluteal Fat Grafting Task Force investigated the risks that were associated with the Brazilian Butt Lift, mainly because of the high volume of fat grafting involved to the buttocks. They were concerned about the fatalities caused by fat embolism and so forth. Dr. Jejurikar stressed that they failed to explain in detail about the specifics of what caused the fatalities.
With that being said, Dr. Jejurikar believes that inadvertent fat injections are caused by surgeons that weren’t aware of the deep anatomic planes of the buttocks. These anatomic planes located in the buttocks are abundant in large blood vessels and low pressure injection is key to a successful procedure. Dr. Jejurikar states that he has switched to an automated injection system that has a built in pressure gauze. This method will prevent fat from accidentally entering those vessels by allowing the injected fat to be released at a lower pressure than what our veins can produce.
