A Brazilian butt lift practitioner has been banned from operating Glasgow.

The Glasgow Times reported how a woman had been hospitalised after a procedure that was carried out in a city hotel.

Environmental Health Officers for the council launched an investigation into the firms and the person who was carrying out the work and charging thousands of pounds a time.

The man who carried out the work is now banned from carrying out work in the city.

If he does attempt to do so he will be in breach of a prohibition order.

The Council said the companies and the individual practitioner have been banned from carrying out further BBLs anywhere in Glasgow.

Glasgow City Council's Environmental Health Officers have served Prohibition Notices on two companies and an associated individual practitioner preventing them from carrying out high risk Brazilian Butt Lift and Breast Augmentation procedures anywhere within the city's boundaries.

The Health and Safety Prohibition Notices prohibit those involved from undertaking any BBL or breast augmentation procedures within any premises or locations within the Glasgow City Council local authority area, until evidence can be provided that these procedures will be carried out safely.

If those involved fail to comply with these notices, a report will be submitted to the Procurator Fiscal for consideration of a Prosecution, where the offender could face imprisonment, a significant fine, or both.

Ruairi Kelly, Glasgow's Convener for Neighbourhood Services, said: "Action has been taken by the council's Environmental Health team in a bid to prevent procedures being carried out in unsuitable and non-sterile locations.

“Three prohibition notices have been served on two companies and an associated individual practitioner.

"People need to be extremely careful when considering undergoing cosmetic procedures. If they go wrong - the consequences can be painful, disfiguring and require emergency medical treatment.

"Our Environmental Health officers are also carrying out inspections of aesthetic clinics in the city to help safeguard the public and will continue to take enforcement action when required."

The companies and individuals concerned have a 21-day period within which they could appeal.
