According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeon, BBL is an augmentation of the buttøck region using a patient’s own fat tissue.

The two-step procedure starts with liposuction of a different area, often the abdomen, the flanks, the thighs or back.

The fat removed from these areas is then injected into the hips and buttocks to improve shape and projection.

Stephanie revealed that some renowned surgeons in the UK and America were opting out of such procedures and advised women to prioritize their health.

“For me, when it comes to taking care of my body, it’s something I don’t compromise on at all. The chances of you dying on liposuction are a lot less than going to do a BBL.”

“With a BBL, there’s at least a 70% chance that you might pass away and its rising. I feel as though people think its scaremongering but it’s not but the truth. Even top surgeons in the UK and America don’t like doing it.

“This is because if any of the fat goes into any part of your body, you are dead,” she said.

Stephanie cited that a good friend of hers died from complications of BBL, leaving behind her children and described as unfortunate the number of women ignoring the high risk involved with BBL, believing that it was just scare mongering.

“Health first, I’m not saying don’t go and do liposuction. I understand that after giving birth, there are some stubborn fats that you can’t just get rid of and some people want to do liposuction. If you deserve it, why not?

“But I say that get your lifestyle in gear first before you consider doing any kind of plastic surgery,” she advised.
