Police in America are investigating the death of a 20-year-old British woman who had a silicone injection into her buttocks at a hotel in Philadelphia.Wha..?
Detectives say the woman and three companions had travelled from London and were staying at the Hampton Inn, close to the city's airport.Mind you, a Philadephia hotel room is probably cleaner than an NHS hospital…
The woman, who has not been named, had the procedure on Monday while one of her travelling companions had a hip augmentation.
In 2009 the former Miss Argentina died following complications from a gluteoplasty procedure in Buenos Aires. Solange Magnano, 38, died from a pulmonary embolism when silicone injected into her buttocks entered her lungs and brain.I can see how the lung complication could be a problem, but the brain..? Surely anyone who opts for a medical procedure in a hotel room isn’t likely to have been using that in the first place?
As Richard points out, this is yet another totally unnecessary beauty industry fad. Where do they come from?
