In the latest horrifying story of unlicensed people performing plastic surgery – a man in Miami, Florida has been arrested for injecting a woman with a mixture of cement, superglue and ‘fix-a-flat’ as a part of a ‘homemade’ buttock enhancement procedure – performed in an apartment.
Hopefully readers can see the many, many things wrong with the above paragraph.. But what I find the most dismaying about the entire episode, is that the woman – who paid 700.00 for the procedure – refused to report this person to the authorities – despite having to seek emergency medical attention on two separate occasions for ‘severe’ complications from this quasi-procedure.
Update: 11/22/2011 – Now more patients with Cement Buttocks are emerging..
A story in a UK paper suggests this fake doc may be a victim of a botched procedure himself. (Take a look at these photos.)
Now it appears similar stories are emerging in other cities – including Las Vegas
