Manhattan, New York –Board-certified New York plastic surgeon, Dr. Kevin Tehrani, is the owner of Aristocrat Plastic Surgery & MedAesthetics and an expert in the cosmetic surgery industry at performing the highly publicized Brazilian Butt Lift procedure. Over the last 2 years, he has seen a dramatic rise in not only the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure but also in revision surgeries necessary due to illegal, black market butt augmentations. Dr. Tehrani performs 3 or more of these surgeries per week in his Manhattan and Long Island practice locations.
Brazilian Butt Lift is a cosmetic procedure that removes fat from one area of the body and transfers are made to the buttocks, resulting in a shapelier look. The rise in popularity has increased with Brazilian Butt Lifts procedures growing by 19% in 2018. A Brazilian Butt Lift is deemed a safe medical procedure when your own fat is transferred into your buttocks and performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon with extensive training and experience with Brazilian Butt Lifts.
With the surge of patients requesting these types of surgical procedures, there has also been an unsettling rise in patients coming in to have their illegal butt implants/silicone injections removed or botched Brazilian Butt Lift surgeries revised due to complications. When patients have these surgeries performed without a board-certified plastic surgeon the results can be devastating and cause life-long consequences.
“We’ve seen a huge increase in patients coming in with illegal silicone injections in their buttocks, and asking for them to be removed ASAP. I cannot stress it enough, illegal silicone injections are extremely dangerous and could sometimes be life-threatening.” – Dr. Kevin Tehrani
Freestanding silicone in the body can cause various complications from pain to changes in the texture and tone of the skin. This silicone also creates the risk of migrating throughout a person’s body resulting in further complications such as inflammation, infection and fat necrosis. Fat necrosis can result from the silicone eating away at surrounding skin and tissues causing long-term and serious complications.
At his practice, Dr. Tehrani uses ultrasound liposuction to remove the freestanding silicone in a patient’s body. After the silicone is removed he can safely harvest good fat from other areas of the body and transfer them to the buttocks for a safe and natural result.
If you plan on having a Brazilian Butt Lift procedures, it is critical to make sure your surgeon is board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and has experience performing these types of surgeries.
