Though plastic surgery has grown substantially more mainstream in the last few years, it’s important to remember that every surgical procedure has risks as well as benefits. Even relatively non-invasive treatments like dermal fillers and Botox can occasionally pose health complications, which is why it is essential for anyone considering plastic surgery in Miami to consult a board-certified plastic surgeon.
The tragic story of a Miami butt enhancement procedure that proved fatal only serves to highlight this fact. Last month, 28-year-old Suyima Torres passed away after receiving injections to augment her backside. CBS Miami reported that the treatment had been administered by “a man who passed himself off as a doctor from Venezuela” who reportedly disappeared after this incident and is “believed to have left the country.”
As demand for enhancements like breast augmentation and Brazilian butt lifts have increased, more professionals – not all of whom are qualified – have sought to profit from it. Though this case is certainly an extreme example of the perils of entrusting the wrong person with your procedure, it stands as a reminder that it is simply not worth the risk to consult anyone but an experienced, board-certified Miami plastic surgeon. These professionals have undergone rigorous medical and aesthetic training, and are equipped to handle any potential complications should they arise during surgery.
