article imageVideo: In-home plastic surgeons mutilate clients

Los Angeles - Mutilation is a strong word but one that fits for this story. Victims have lost limbs, skin and one even lost their life. This is due to a trend of private, untrained plastic surgery sweeping parts of the developed world.
Apryl Brown thought she was getting cheap injections to increase the look of her posterior. She was being tricked and her amateur operator had been injecting bathroom caulk sealant into her body. A staph infection had spread throughout Brown's body and nearly killed her. The infection was so invasive her arms and legs had to be removed completely. She also had multiple surgeries to save her life according to the CNN report.
Wrinkle fillers and other cosmetic treatments are fully approved and legal according to the FDA. No one should ever get any of these from anyone other than a licensed doctor. Even approved materials can cause damage if applied improperly. The appeal is that you can get an $800 procedure for around $100.
A British woman even died after a procedure in a Philadelphia hotel room. A botched silicone injection lead to Claudia Aderotimi, 20, having silicone move from her buttocks to her lungs. It allegedly choked her and quickly put her in critical condition at a nearby hospital where she would later die.
These problems have not slowed down the promotion of in-home treatments such as Botox. There is a demand for them despite the risks involved. For many the chance for real beauty at an inexpensive cost is too strong to ignore.
