A second British woman has died from “Brazilian butt lift” surgery, the BBC has learned, as fresh warnings come over the risks.
The British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (Baaps) said it was the most dangerous cosmetic procedure to undergo.
The surgery has been made popular by celebrities.
But many people are putting themselves at risk by seeking cheaper procedures abroad, Baaps warned.
‘One death in 3,000’
A Brazilian butt lift (BBL) is a cosmetic procedure in which fat is taken from one part of the body and then injected into the buttocks.
Baaps told the BBC’s Victoria Derbyshire programme an estimated one in 3,000 die worldwide as a result of complications.
In August, 29-year-old Leah Cambridge died while undergoing a BBL procedure in Turkey.
A second British woman in her late 20s, also died this year, the Victoria Derbyshire programme has learned. An inquest into her death is due to happen within the next year.
