The quest to have a perfect posterior was almost deadly for a California woman who became a multiple amputee after the botched procedure. April Brown of Los Angeles had multiple limbs removed after living for five years in “excruciating pain” from silicone butt injections. The mother and former cosmetologist had her legs and part of her arms removed to save her life after doctors reported that she had multiple infections from the substance she placed into her body. “They call it butt injections,” she told a local NBC news station. “These things are done at pumping parties. They call it medical grade silicone, but a lot of it is industrial grade silicone.”
Now calling herself a “survivor” Brown says she feels enamored by the love and support of her friends who feared she would die as a result of her plastic surgery nightmare.”We don’t validate each other,” she said. “We really don’t know how our friends feel about us, unless we have very expressive friends.”
Now thankful for her life despite her situation, Brown says she hopes to become a motivational speaker and empower girls who may be dealing with body confidence issues much like she was before her quest for perfection nearly killed her.
Like Brown, a number of celebs have reportedly taken to extreme measures to pump up their posteriors. Luckily for them however, they didn’t have the negative side effects like she did.
