Huffington Post asks Dr. Devgan to weigh in on the alarmingly high mortality rate resulting from Brazilian Butt Lifts. She offers insight on the subject and emphasizes the importance of choosing a board certified plastic surgeon that is experienced in the procedure.
“Plastic surgery, in some ways, has become the Wild West,” Devgan said, adding that “all sorts of physicians of all descriptions, whether or not they have formal training in the discipline, are going out there, hanging up the shingle and performing plastic surgery.”
She also discusses some nonsurgical alternatives to Brazilian Butt Lifts.
"Nonsurgical options are available too, with the most popular being Sculptra buttock augmentation. That’s an injectable filler that stimulates the body’s own collagen, and it can be injected to make the buttock more shapely and reduce the appearance of cellulite,” she said. “The limitation of that technique is that it takes a lot of product and a long time for the results to come to be.
"There’s also EmSculpt, which Devgan said is “basically electric muscle stimulation” that’s meant to encourage your body to build muscle mass."
