Deadly desire for bigger buttocks
Buttocks-boosting shots have become one of the most conspicuously dangerous of cosmetic procedures, but patients keep getting them.
News stories of patients dying in a quest for a bigger booty keep turning up. The deaths tend to occur in patients seeking low-priced alternatives to more costly treatments such as buttock implants.
The latest fatality was a British woman who traveled from London last week to get buttocks-enhancement injections of silicone in a hotel room at a Hampton Inn near the Philadelphia airport.
