Vaginal Rejuvenation. A term not so commonly used by the average female has, over recent years in particular, become a booming procedure for plastic surgeons and doctors. This practice has become a heavily debated and slightly controversial topic within the industry in recent years. This is due to the ethical and health and safety risks of some devices and treatments that promise to "rejuvenate" women's vaginas.
Early this year, at a clinic in Turkey, a woman tragically passed away mid surgery. She was undergoing a procedure known as Brazilian Butt Lift , AKA BBL. So, what is this surgery and why is it becoming so popular that some would risk their lives to have it?
BBL Surgery, made popular by social media stars and TV personalities, involves fat being liposuctioned from donor areas on a patient’s body, then injected into the patient’s buttocks.
If there is any further evidence needed to avoid going overseas for your plastic surgery needs it’s Sky Wheatley on the latest episode of Trial By Kyle. Sky Wheatley had a botched breast augmentation in Thailand in 2015 and yes, it is still an ongoing concern 3 years later.
If you don’t know the story here it is in summary. Sky Wheatley (previously a Big Brother contestant) was approached by a company that arranges surgery needs overseas for a competitive price.
They asked Sky if she would be interested in collaborating with them, she would receive a free breast augmentation surgery in Thailand in exchange for promoting her results and the company.
It should be noted that it is illegal for a Plastic Surgeon in Australia to offer any form of discount or benefits in exchange for surgery.
Unfortunately for Sky, when she awoke from surgery her implants were what appeared to be varying in size and showed signs of “double bubble.”
Double bubble is when the implant falls below the inframammary crease. As you can see in Sky’s photo post-surgery below, the implant on the left has slipped below the breast crease. There is no way to correct for double bubble without further surgery

One of the most common questions asked prior to breast augmentation surgery is “will I be able to breast feed?”
Many women debate upon whether to get breast augmentation before or after childbirth. Whilst this is a personal decision to make, it’s important to understand how surgery can effect childbirth and breast feeding.
Does Breast Augmentation mean that you won’t be able to breast feed?
