Considering Adding Some Junk to Your Trunk?
It seems odd to me that junk in the trunk is no longer a fashion faux pas. I suppose I spent too many years munching on ice cubes and telling myself that they were potato chips so that I could maintain that tiny backside that Twiggy made fashionable.
My mother battled layers of latex in order to maintain a tiny backside, and yet here we are in the Kardashian age of large derrieres. People even pay to have a little extra inserted back there.
And that can cause a real problem.
Like any other commodity, there are people that are looking for a way to save a few bucks and those who are looking to make some money easily. So it should be no surprise to hear that there are people who will sell you the butt of your dreams on the black market for much less than you will pay at your local cosmetic surgeon’s office.
It should also be no surprise to find out that not only is this highly illegal, it’s also highly dangerous.
People have died.
You see, the firmer, rounder behind is achieved by injecting silicone into the area. The problem is that most of these underground clinics don’t use the medical grade silicone, but instead inject a lower quality, industrial grade silicone. There are complications that can arise and they are often deadly due to the secrecy surrounding the process. Septic shock is not uncommon and can result in death.
I am all for saving money, but when it comes to your health, you need to remember that you get what you pay for.
