Gluteal fat grafting, commonly known as the Brazilian Butt Lift, is a popular enhancement surgery people get to help shape and increase the size and shape of their backside. In fact, it has now become one of the fastest growing aesthetic procedures in the US and throughout the world.  It is often used to help balance figures for a more proportionate look.

Like other surgical procedures, gluteal fat grafting does involve risks and it has also resulted in some deaths. After learning of an investigation into the number of deaths in South Florida from this procedure, one plastic surgeon in San Diego, Dr. Mark Mofid, became very concerned. Along with some of his colleagues, Dr. Mofid formed the ASERF Task Force to investigate the issues surrounding the Brazilian butt lift.
