Dr. Christopher Johnson talked to Karim Orange over at the Huff about butt augmentationm and the increase of illegal implants carried out at underground pump parties –
“The kinds of problem we see from illegal implants are generally the result of men and women who attend underground ‘pump up parties’ where industrial grade silicone is injected into the buttocks, hips and parts of the face.
As you can imagine, this is extremely dangerous for a myriad of reasons. Very often these procedures morph into surgical misadventures where sterile conditions are not maintained. The final result is botched due to the development of serious infections in individuals who undergo these underground procedures.
The practitioners of pump up often lack knowledge of anatomy. This can lead to malposition or even movement of the silicone to undesirable places on the body. The silicone can even be inadvertently injected into an artery where it then can travel to the lungs, brain or other parts of the body, often resulting in devastating consequences including death.”
Butt augmentation procedures in 2014 was up 15% in America compared to the previous year. If you do decide to go this route to get a bigger butt then it is advisable to research the plastic surgeons in your area and make sure the one you finally choose is board certified.
