Silicone Butt Injections Are Not Worth the Cost, in any Sense of the Word

Beverly Hills Physicians reminds those considering plastic surgery that your health is your greatest asset

LOS ANGELES, May 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Beverly Hills Physicians has reminded patients in the past about the dangers of plastic surgery abroad in unaccredited facilities. The top medical network comprised of experts in plastic surgery in Beverly Hills is also speaking out on a growing domestic concern with regards to black market silicone injections for butt augmentations. While many think that silicone—a substance usually associated with safe, FDA-approved breast implants—may be safe, it isn't always, especially when administered by a non-professional. BHP urges potential patients of any procedure, whether buttocks augmentation or mommy makeover and breast lift, in Los Angeles and throughout the country to visit an accredited facility that is up to domestic standards and staffed with licensed doctors.

Tragically, people have been hurt or killed by illegal silicone butt injections all over the country, including recent cases in Alabama, California, Georgia, Florida, Mississippi, Nevada, New York, and Pennsylvania. In a story from late 2013, CBS News even suggested that deaths from illegal butt injections will continue to rise. These injections are clearly not safe for the body, and are often made up of industrial silicone, the same material used in caulking, or a mixture of unsafe and/or unknown substances. Beverly Hills Physicians recommends that people considering a buttocks augmentation educate themselves before undergoing any procedure that seems too good to be true. Prospective patients can also learn more about butt injections and other treatments from the legitimate and accredited BHP medical team.

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) has mounted a campaign called Do Your Homework, which speaks out against the trend of "pumping". Noting that silicone is not approved for cosmetic injections in this country, the campaign also promotes doing research on any medical professional, cosmetic surgeon, or specialist. It's a laudable effort, and one that is heartily supported by BHP. The ASPS has created a find a surgeon tool, where prospective patients can look up an individual and see their board certifications and procedures they're known for. Beverly Hills Physicians, similarly, showcases the certifications of all of their surgeons and is always willing to discuss their doctors' qualifications in a free consultation.

Furthermore, Beverly Hills Physicians wants patients to know that legitimate plastic surgery gives better results and is not as expensive as many believe. A fat transfer to buttocks procedure, the most popular butt augmentation procedure at BHP, provides permanent, much more realistic results for patients. Plus, with a payment plan that can match any budget, a BHP fat transfer to the buttocks can make any woman feel more voluptuous and feminine. This is all, of course, in addition to averted hospital bills from poisonous injections and the invaluable peace of mind that comes from knowing that a patient is safe.

The danger of illegal silicone injections from unqualified people deserves to have much more media coverage. Protect your body if you choose to get a butt-boosting procedure by going to a qualified and accredited medical facility like Beverly Hills Physicians.
