The Consequences of Illegal Butt Injections

With more women wanting a backside like Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Lopez, many have decided to turn to illegal methods to increase the size of their buttocks.

These methods are illegal because unlicensed providers are using unapproved materials for buttocks enhancements.

These illegal procedures and can lead to infection, an undesirable appearance, and even death.

One of Many Examples of What Can Happen

In July of 2009, Oscarina Busse decided to have illegal butt injections. It wasn’t too long before she saw her buttocks turn purple and then grey.

After a few months, the grey skin turned dry and crusty. It started to peel off in large chunks revealing a droopy backside with a pool of puss collecting at the bottom. It didn’t just look bad; it also hurt. She describes her buttocks as feeling hot with a severe stinging sensation.

It’s cases like these that have horrified many women and kept them from deciding on black market butt injections. However, there are still some women who believe it won’t happen to them, despite the warnings from the FDA and the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

Why Illegal Injections Cause So Much Harm

It’s dangerous to inject free flowing liquids into the body. On the black market, it’s often silicone or mineral oil that’s used as the volume agent in the buttocks. On top of the risks of injecting these liquids into the body, black market “doctors” often times use dirty needles and non-sterile technique.

Using these substances can cause the body to elicit a strong autoimmune response, as it tries to fight the foreign substances. This can lead to the skin changing colors, boils, polyps and necrosis.

For some people, the toxic substances attack organs, get into the bloodstream and spread infection throughout the entire body. This can lead to amputation of the infected limb or even death.

Remember, it’s never worth the lower price! Illegal injections for a bigger butt can lead to infection, disfiguration, and death. Don’t take the chance. While Busse was lucky because she was able to find a doctor who was able to remove the poison from her body and rebuild her buttocks, that’s not always possible. What an extremely high price to pay.
