Although an official autopsy results have yet to be released, it is believed that the women may have died due to pulmonary embolism. Pulmonary embolisms are blood clots that form in the lungs, and can be the result of complications caused by injection liquid silicone – permanent filler that is banned in the US as well as many other countries.

Police are now investigating the death, however the women thought to have performed the procedure has yet to be detained.

Experts noted that number of buttock enhancement surgeries is on the rise, especially in ‘places like Brazil,’ says Paul Harris, plastic surgery consultant at the Royal Marsden hospital in London. Harris did point out that while the number of buttock enhancement surgeries performed in the UK was also increasing, liquid silicone injections was not used because of the risks.

This tragic incident is a prime example of what can happen when opting for cheap procedures performed by unlicensed surgeons; further substantiating the need to visit an experienced and registered professional when undergoing plastic or reconstructive surgery.
