I was shocked to read in Health and medicine news about the tragic death of a woman in Las Vegas after buttock enhancement surgery. Unfortunately, this is not localised to the USA as was seen with Denise Hendry recently.

A married couple who are unlicensed to practice medicine were arrested after a woman died during a buttocks enhancement procedure in the back room of a Las Vegas floor tile store this week. They were stopped from leaving the country by Police. The husband admitted that he did not have a licence to practice medicine in the USA but was a homeopath in his native country.

Police were told that they did not have the correct equipment but that he "eventually ... did perform the procedure ... by injecting her with 200 cc of a gel type substance within 6 separate injection sites."

This highlights the care that must be taken by anybody considering cosmetic surgery. Please see my blog (link above) about how you can do this.
