The dangers of illegal and black market plastic surgery

In a bid to have shapelier and larger buttocks without paying exorbitant amounts of money, more women in the United States are resorting to black market plastic surgery procedures. Tragically, these cheaper alternatives to cosmetic surgery all too often do not produce the results a person wants, but rather result in serious, even life-threatening, health problems.

Reports of death from black market buttock injections have become more common  in the states of Georgia, Florida, New York, Alabama, Pennsylvania, and Nevada, as more women turn to people, who often do not have any proper or official medical training, offering cheaper procedures that involve injecting home-improvement materials, such as silicone. Sadly, in many cases, the large amounts of silicone injected into the body, especially if administered by someone with no professional training, can cause blood clots and infections.

Currently, an interior decorator is facing charges for causing the deaths of two women she injected with supposed bottom-enhancing materials at her house.

When you are seeking to improve your appearance, you need to choose a procedure that is going to be performed by a legitimate medical professional so it is not detrimental to your health in the long run.
