What Are the Signs That My BBL Surgery Has Gone Wrong?
Despite following the same procedure as other forms of lipofilling, the BBL is regarded as a highly dangerous cosmetic surgery. Complications following a BBL procedure can range from severe bacterial infections including MRSA and Pseudomonas, to tissue necrosis, scarring, wound ruptures (dehiscence) and abscesses.
Furthermore, one in 3,000 operations have resulted in the death of a patient, making it the most dangerous cosmetic surgery procedure currently available. Death from BBL surgery is caused by the accidental injection of fat into large veins, which then travels up to the heart, lungs or brain. Learn more about which cosmetic procedures carry the highest risk here.
Aside from this, BBL has the same side effects as other forms of fat transfer. In the days following surgery, patients can expect to experience:
- Bruising and swelling
- Temporary numbness
- The appearance of small scars at the injection site
While the above are considered normal, there are a number of side effects that can indicate the procedure has gone wrong. These include:
- Fat necrosis - the death of fat tissue
- Blockage of a blood vessel
- Haematoma - the collection, or pooling of blood under the skin
- Pneumothorax - when air leaks into the space between the lungs and chest wall
- Large and obvious scarring
- Asymmetrical disfigurement or distorted appearance due to over-filling

The Duty of Care for Clinics and Surgeons
Surgeons who carry out BBL procedures have a duty of care to ensure that their patients are kept safe. It is essential that they are held accountable to this duty, as when BBL procedures go wrong, they can cause long-term physical and psychological harm to the patient.
Clinics and surgeons are not only responsible for avoiding negative outcomes that can be reasonably prevented, but also for providing information about the complications that cannot be prevented. If your clinic or surgeon has not fulfilled this duty of care, you may be eligible to make a BBL compensation claim.
An increasing number of people are travelling overseas to undergo a BBL procedure abroad, which presents a number of risks for those who choose this route. If you have suffered negligence as a result of BBL gone wrong surgery in a foreign country, our solicitors can provide legal advice on your next steps.
