Marginalized Women & Brazilian Butt Lifts Part 1

This is part one of our Marginalized Women and Brazilian Butt Lifts discussion. On this episode we discuss the dangers of the popular Brazilian Butt Lift plastic surgery procedure. We cover a notorious Miami clinic that performs many BBLs, with some devastating results and the doctor who owns and operates this clinic, even though they are not a board certified plastic surgeon. And we highlight Pretty Brown Girl, an organization that empowers Black and Brown girls while encouraging self-acceptance by cultivating social, emotional & intellectual well-being.
