Surgeons for Safety believe that the gluteal fat grafting procedure can be performed safely.
In June, the Florida Board of Medicine approved an emergency rule to significantly limit the practice of gluteal fat grafting, more commonly known as a “Brazilian butt lift,” in Florida.
In the emergency rule, there are two highly problematic and ineffective restrictions, including an arbitrary limit of only three procedures being performed in a day and a new requirement that ultrasound equipment be used during the procedure.
As board-certified plastic surgeons, we know firsthand what is needed to ensure patient safety, and we also look to science-based research and facts when it comes to the practice of medicine. That is why we at Surgeons for Safety believe that the gluteal fat grafting procedure can be performed safely.
