Beware Of Fraudulent Butt Shots, Quest For Fatty Cakes Lands Six In N.J. Hospital

- By Bossip Staff Categories: Cakes, Crotchy-licious, Cry Me A River

This ish is just sad. Six New Jersey women who dreamed of juicier cakes, ended up in a real life nightmare after getting caulk in the booty. Pop the hood for the gory details.

Six women from the Essex County area who wanted fuller bottoms ended up in hospitals after receiving buttocks-enhancement injections containing the same material contractors use to caulk bathtubs, officials said.

The women checked into hospitals in the county after their procedures, apparently administered by unlicensed providers, went horribly wrong, state health officials said. The women underwent surgery and were given antibiotics. No arrests have been made.

Different from medical-grade silicone, the substance used in the botched procedures was believed to be a diluted version of nonmedical-grade silicone.

“What a tragedy,” said Gregory Borah, chief of plastic surgery at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick.

Using over-the-counter silicone can cause abscesses that he said resemble “a big zit.”

Borah, also president of the New Jersey Society of Plastic Surgeons, said the botched procedures underscore the need for patients who seek augmentation to have it administered by a licensed professional in a sterile setting.

A plastic surgeon doing buttocks augmentation would make an incision to develop a pocket underneath the muscle and shape the buttocks with inert medical-grade silicone, Borah said. He noted it is a relatively uncommon procedure in most practices and that he has done only two in his 24-year career.

By the time he tells patients of the potential risks — from anesthesia, scarring and silicone shifting when patients sit down — they often change their minds.

Breast and cheek augmentations are the most common procedures, he noted. Borah said buttock augmentation is more popular in some cultures than others.

The state Department of Health and Senior Services did not identify the women or release any details about their ethnicity. It also did not say where the “unlicensed medical provider or providers” performed their procedures.

“Fortunately, these women are being treated and are recovering,” said Tina Tan, the state epidemiologist. “But there is the potential for more serious complications if these infections are not treated early and properly.”

Investigators have not determined if the six cases, which began to be reported in mid-February, are related, but they have stoked concern among officials that such injuries are more common than previously thought.

Health officials issued an alert to state hospitals and doctors about the cases and the potential for more victims.

Marcus said there have been other incidents over the past couple years of providers providing implants of nonmedical-grade silicone, then getting put out of business — only for other shady providers to surface.

“Caveat emptor: Buyer beware,” Marcus said. “If it looks too cheap, there’s probably a reason it’s too cheap.”

SMH at “buttock augmentation is more popular in some cultures than others”.

    The thought of sitting on bags of silicone that could possibly shift is too painful to bear. If a man can’t accept you for what you have naturally maybe he’s not worth being with. I just think that everybody needs to be happy with what they have. If it can’t be fixed in the gym, is it worth your life? If so then by all means take the risk!!

  • shonda

    Vanity has gone berserk. Is having an oversize arse worth killing yourself over? I remember the days when having a big butt, full lips was considered unattractive!


    The thing that kills me is they actually “paid” some one to do that to them!! I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again: If you can’t love your self, how the hell do you expect anyone else to love you??? Now they have an azz fulla industrial grade caulk, and will undoubtedly have large medical bills as a result of getting it out of their systems!! I mean in the grand scheme of things, was it really worth it??? Love your selves, PEOPLE!!!

    Honestly, I really cannot feel sorry for these women. They went to an unlicensed provider for plastic surgery. They probably went to this person because he/she was “cheap” or could offer them buttocks enhancements for a fraction of the cost of a licensed medical professional. These women should have checked with the state medical board to verify the provider’s credentials.
