Black Market Butt Injections
There was a time when a skinny butt was actually a good thing. In recent years curvatious women like Jalo have changed that thinking. Women seem better able to embrace their natural gifts and celebrate curves. Of course, being human, if curves are good then more curves are better. If God didn’t bless us then it is our birthright to pursue another way.
In the last few months a hand full of women in NJ ended up with more than they bargained for: they started ending up in emergency rooms. It seems an as-yet unidentified “practitioner” convinced these women that he/she was qualified to enlarge their behinds with injections. The problem is he/she was grossly unqualified and unethical. He took their money and injected them with a mystery substance, possibly industrial grade silicon. They developed sores and draining abscesses as the body tried to rid itself of the tainted material. A similar outbreak occurred in Florida in January 2009.
Does this mean they got what they deserved, vanity thy name is woman? Absolutely not! In our society and many others, enhancing one’s outward appearance is accepted and honored. These poor women were victimized, something that is happening more and more. Poorly trained (or not at all) “practitioners” hiding behind words like “doctor” (very small d),” board certified”, “medical director”, “provider” without definition.
We are outraged at such gross examples of incompetence and criminality. Understandably we are less concerned with the storefront spa that sells Botox injected by the receptionist but that is the first link to complacency. I think a step in the right direction is to define who is doing what procedure, what is their license if any (MD, RN, MA, Aesth, etc…) and who is supervising. The bottom line is medical procedures, even the cosmetic ones, need to be done with expertise and integrity and the patient has a right to know who holds the needle.
