Nowadays just about everyone is seeking a bigger booty. But instead of lunges and squats, many women are opting to go the route of plastic surgery.
There are many professionals around who will plump up your derriere for a pretty penny, but many women opt to get the hook up on their procedures in hotel rooms and private residences.
April Brown chose the latter and it almost ruined her life. Brown, once a successful cosmetologist and fashion designer, received silicone injections in her buttocks, and now she lives as a double amputee.
“I got the butt implants five years ago,” said Brown. “For five years, I lived in pain. Excruciating pain.”
Brown, a mother of two, has had to have parts of all her four limbs cut off to save her life, after the unlicensed cosmetic procedures led to life-threatening infections.

“They call it butt injections,” she says. “These things are done at pumping parties. They call it medical grade silicone but a lot of it is industrial grade silicone.”
Brown’s case resembles many other recent incidents. But Brown feels she’s a survivor, empowered by the words of loved ones who feared she would die.
Unfortunately for Brown, it was at a hospital, where she picked up an infection. By last year, doctors informed her that she would have to undergo the amputations of both hands and feet in order to save her life.
Brown remains inspired even with the loss of her limbs. Now she feels that her new calling in life is as a motivational speaker, where she hopes to encourage other woman to feel better about themselves.
“We don’t validate each other,” she says. “We really don’t know how our friends feel about us, unless we have very expressive friends.” (source)
Good for her! It’s great that shes keeping a positive attitude after making such a dumb decision. Maybe Brown’s experience will prevent others from following the same path.
Am I the only one who wonders what all these procedures will look like 10 years from now?
