The procedure involves injecting two fluid ounces of fat cells, which is very dangerous even if considered safe. A fat embolism “occurs when fat tissue passes into the bloodstream and lodges within the blood vessels of the lung and other sites, resulting in respiratory failure.” Doctors later concluded that the fat that had loosened in the surgery traveled up through punctured veins and into the lungs. It then popped blood vessels there, which caused a lung embolism.
