A story reported at the publication, Inside Costa Rica, reminds all San Diegans to play it safe when it comes to getting a buttock lift or implant. That’s because one woman has tragically died due to illegal buttock implants performed by way of injections.
The woman, reportedly from Costa Rica, is the second known cause of such death. We blogged earlier about a series of illegal buttock implant surgeries in Florida last year, with one resulting in the woman’s unfortunate death.
According to reports, the woman, 33, received a series of questionable injections in the buttock area at an illegal cosmetic enhancement office out of San Jose, Costa Rica.
The woman, who was admitted to San Juan de Dios Hospital, later died after a serious infection overtook her body. Even though she had been receiving daily treatment to overcome the infection, the woman was unable to fight off the bacterial contagion. Unfortunately, the woman deteriorated quickly despite medical care and died Tuesday.
Although the details of this specific case is currently unknown, most illegal butt injections involve the administration of industrial-grade silicone. It is possible the infection could have been a result of the very same application of silicone.
