A task force representing plastic surgery societies is urging practitioners to reevaluate performing gluteal fat injections (Brazilian butt lift). This comes on the heels of new recommendations for making gluteal fat injections safer due to concerns about deaths from the procedure.

The multi-society Gluteal Fat Grafting Task Force chaired by Dan Mills, M.D., J. Peter Rubin, M.D., and Renato Saltz, M.D., reports that every surgeon performing the Brazilian butt lift should “immediately” reevaluate the way he or she does it.
