Butt Seriously, Ladies!

Six women in New Jersey chose to do some renovation work on their behinds. The procedure, called "The J-Lo," (named after Jennifer Lopez) is on the menu in a new wave of underground plastic surgery. Low on cash and high on hopes, these ladies couldn't wait to boost their butts and reshape their booty. What could possibly go wrong? Plenty. All six women are in the hospital after being injected with . . . wait for it . . . bathroom caulk. Instead of a "low cost" buttocks enhancement procedure, what they got was a fast ride to the emergency room after developing serious deep tissue infections and abscesses. All six women were victims of dangerous, black market plastic surgery.

Last month, a 22 year old woman died after receiving injections of silicone into the buttocks that migrated to her lungs and led to respiratory failure. Back alley silicone injections are finding their way throughout the United States. The silicone used in these procedures is not medical grade silicone, but industrial silicone used for bathtubs and windows! There are no butts about it . . . under no circumstances should medical treatments be performed by anyone other than Board Certified Plastic Surgeons. After all . . . your life depends on it.
