Why would anyone go to an unlicensed plastic surgeon for plastic surgery? Aren't the women just as much to blame as the Drs?

"Caulk" Butt Implants Hospitalize Six New Jersey Women

Six New Jersey women are recovering in the hospital after receiving black-market implants for their buttocks.
Police in Essex County say their procedures were done by unlicensed surgeons ... Who apparently used non-medical grade silicone.
One poison expert likened the material to caulk used to seal plumbing fixtures in bathrooms.
The state department of health has not identified the women ... Nor released information on where they received their bogus surgeries.
No arrests have been made. The six patients received anti-biotic treatment to fight infections, and are now recovering.

  • Butt implants? *giggles*

    Yeah, while the doctor is disgusting for using caulk - the women really just deserve to be handed their signs. An unlicensed surgeon? My mind is just reeling. These women must not have brains.

  • Yea, The women are the bigger idiots, imo... Why anyone would have medical treatment done by someone UNlicensed in their field is BEYOND me... They get the Alexander Dumass (caulk ass) Award....

  • It comes down to this:

    Licensed: $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    Unlicensed: $$$$$

    Of course it's wrong. OF COURSE. But need I say more? People are drawn to better deals, no matter how illegal it is.

  • Yeah they are to blame..

    They're pretty damn dumb.. but none the less, they are responsible.. They made the choice to pay this person to do an alteration to their bodies.. Maybe they learned a lesson. Doubtful though.. I'm pretty sure they are going to blame the "doctor" and try to hold him legally responsible for this mess. I don't see a single one of these women taking responsibility for their piss poor choice, call me cynical, but I just don't see it.

  • Haha....I'm sure the local yellowpages plumber or handyman could have done the same for less. They should have just contacted them instead.

    The multiple levels of stupidity in the article are pretty damn funny.

    It's the same as using an unlicensed contractor to do major repairs on your home. You get what you pay for.

    And really...BUTT IMPLANTS.....HAHA
