CBS News reported that a Dallas, Texas, a woman was recently convicted of the 2015 murder of another woman after she illegally injected silicone into the victim’s buttocks during an illegal cosmetic buttock enhancement procedure.
The patient receiving the injections hoped to enhance the size and shape of her buttocks, and had been a regular visitor for silicone injections. She died when the injected silicone entered a blood vessel, traveled through her bloodstream poisoning her. The silicone eventually blocked one of her lungs reducing oxygen her intake, causing her to suffocate.
The woman administering the silicone injection was unlicensed to practice medicine or cosmetic procedures in Texas. She practiced out of a Dallas warehouse, and reportedly sealed injection sites with glue and cotton balls.
