Physicians Coalition for Injectable Safety Warns Buttock-Boosting Injections Risky and Deadly

Coalition Says Synthetic Fillers and Large Volume Injections Dangerous

New York, NY (Vocus) December 15, 2009 -- The popularity and hype surrounding buttock augmentation and other large-volume body enhancing injections on blog sites like RealSelf.com and outside U.S. borders is an alarming and potentially deadly trend, cautions the Physicians Coalition for Injectable Safety.

It is the result of a dangerous practice with fillers that are not intended to be used in this way." Buttock augmentation is a hot topic in the media and a popular procedure of surgical tourism," often performed in countries where standards are less stringent.
