COSMETIC surgeons have called for a ban on Brazilian bum lifts in the UK - following the death of a second British woman. The British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (Baaps) has today asked it's members to stop performing the ops until more research on the dangers of the procedure can be done.
