Butt Injections Gone Wrong

They end up spending more to fix the problem than it would have cost to do it right the first time.

Are you willing to risk your life in order to get a bigger butt? There is a rising problem with women choosing to get illegal injections of “gel” injected into their butt to achieve the Kim Kardashian look they all crave. Unfortunately, this material that is being injected can have devastating effects and may be life threatening.

Trevor Schmidt PA-C, the owner and liposuction specialist at MyShape Lipo is seeing an alarming number of women that have had these injections and are now looking to get the material removed because of complications.

“It amazes me how many women are willing to put themselves at risk in order to look better,” says Schmidt. “They end up spending more to fix the problem than it would have cost to do it the right way in the first place.”

The black market for butt injections has been growing rapidly and the women that are seeking the injections are desperate for bigger butts. In some cases, the results are amazing, but all too often the results are devastating. Most are choosing this option because it is a cheaper alternative to implants or fat transfer. For as little as $1500 one can get a bigger butt.

Unfortunately, these gels can cause many problems including infection, hard lumps and irregularities, it can even eat away at the skin causing large holes in the skin. The cost to fix the problem could be their life, but in many cases requires multiple hospital stays and reconstructive surgeries.

“These women have a much safer effective alternative to a bigger butt. The fat transfer to the butt is a great procedure,” says Schmidt. “It may be more expensive, but peace of mind and reduced risk are well worth the expense. It also has the benefit of reducing problem areas through liposuction, so you get a thinner waist and a bigger butt.”

Since these illegal gels are not regulated by the FDA, there is no way to be sure what is actually in the gel. Some reports are claiming to find drain cleaner or even cement mixed in the gel. There were even reports of using silicone gel from hardware stores to inject into the butt.

“Until there is a safe, tested synthetic material to inject in the butt, fat transfer is by far the best option,” claims Schmidt. “There is simply no reason to take such great risk for cosmetic improvement, especially when there are much safer alternatives. I hope to educate these women and encourage them to seek out safer options and consider the long term effects of what they are putting in their body.”

With fat transfer, the surgeon can take fat from an unwanted area through liposuction and transfer it to the butt or the breasts for a natural enhancement. This procedure has been safely performed for decades with excellent results. Although it may be more expensive for the procedure, peace of mind and safety are priceless.
