Horribly mutilated three patients after botching their ‘Brazilian butt-lift’ procedures

A Miami plastic surgeon has been told to stop doing “Brazilian butt-lift” procedures after he horribly botched them in a two-day period last year, the Florida Department of Health said.
Four different women had serious complications after they were treated by Dr. Osakatukei “Osak” Omulepu in May of last year, officials said. Three of the women suffered distress after they “underwent liposuction with bilateral fat transfer to the gluteal areas,” according to the emergency order obtained by the Daily News.
Dr. Omulepu’s license has been “hereby immediately restricted from performing liposuction, liposuction with bilateral fat transfer to the buttocks, and/or any procedure using the tumescent technique in the state of Florida,” reads the order.

Dr. Osak Omulepu describes himself as ‘very aggressive when it comes to liposuction.’

The order was signed by Florida Surgeon General John Armstrong earlier this month.
A 35-year-old woman had to be placed on a ventilator due to respiratory failure after the butt-lift procedure. Dr. Omulepu even told her family that he was “trying to figure out what he did wrong,” according to the order.
Another 35-year-old woman “experienced significant bleeding” from her incision sites after the butt-lift procedure, and a 31-year-old woman also suffered complications.
A fourth woman, 29, was found profusely bleeding in her hotel room after undergoing liposuction of her stomach, planks, abdomen, and bilateral thighs.
The Instagram account has since been set to private, but Omulepu used to upload before-and-after shots of his work, adorned with emojis.
The doctor “repeatedly failed to meet the minimum standard of care in his treatment of four patients, resulting in significant medical emergencies requiring extensive hospitalization for each patient,” the order states.
“The extreme number of violations that occurred within this two-day period, which resulted in significant and lasting patient harm, indicates that Dr. Omulepu’s conduct is likely continue. If his conduct continues, it will cause significant harm to his patients.”
In a promotional video obtained by the Miami Herald, Dr. Omulepu describes himself as “very aggressive when it comes to liposuction.” He also says in the video that “safety is a concern, always, when it comes to surgery.” He has been licensed in Florida since 2000.
