article imageCosta Rican woman dies from illegal butt enhancement injections

Another woman, this one from Costa Rica, is reported to have died after having illegal butt enhancement injections. This is at least the second known case of such a death, with a woman dieing from illegal butt enhancement injections in Florida last year.
Inside Costa Rica reports that the woman, 33, with the surname Granados, had received butt enhancements at an illegal cosmetic clinic in San Jose, Costa Rica. The goal of these butt enhancements is purely cosmetic, making a slender buttocks more voluptuous or giving a sagging buttocks more body.
Serious infections after butt injections
A spokeswoman for the San Juan de Dios Hospital where the woman died, Andrea de la Cruz, said the woman's buttocks had become seriously infected and she had been receiving daily treatment at the hospital in an effort to cure those infections. She deteriorated over the weekend and died on Tuesday.
Women who go to illegal clinics are at risk as, to cut corners, rather than simply taking belly fat and injecting that into the buttocks, there has been documented cases of operators of these clinics injecting other substances into the butt, including industrial silicone. In the case of Granados, it's not yet known specifically what was injected into her.
Mexican singer: problems from illegal butt enhancement
In 2011, Mexican singer Alejandra Guzman took butt enhancement injections, reportedly also at an illegal clinic, and has suffered negative effects from those injections since.
In Florida last July a charge of manslaughter was brought against Oneal Morris in the death of Shatarka Nuby, who died in March of 2012 of what an assistant medical examiner called "massive systemic silicone migration" following butt enhancement injections.
Toronto police recently issued a warning about illegal butt enhancements. A woman in nearby Newmarket, Ont., Marilyn Ely Reid, 46, has been charged with administering illegal butt enhancements.
