When butt enhancement goes horribly wrong: Woman left with hideous bulge after implant 'flips inside out'

  • Video apparently shows implant protruding after botched plastic surgery
  • She moves it back into place, saying: 'Don't think it's meant to do that'

A shocking video emerged today showing a grotesque bulge in a woman's buttock apparently caused when her botched silicone implant 'flipped inside out'.

Instead giving her a smooth, plump appearance, the implant has popped out and is left protruding in an ugly disc shape at the back of her cheek.

In the 20-second clip, the unidentified woman slowly manipulates it back into place while explaining: 'This is my implant flipping backwards'.

She adds: 'I don't think an implant's supposed to do that. It shouldn't be able to flip.'

The video has been 'liked' by 278 people on Facebook and shared nearly 20,000 times.

One user, Donna Wright-Levy, commented: 'I prefer to go harder on the squats, lunges, hamstring curls and the gluteous kickbacks...'

Kader SmileyFace said: 'Uh!! Why would she want a bigger ass!'

 

It is difficult to establish whether the video is genuine and no details are known about which clinic the woman went to or exactly what type of procedure she had.

But BAAPS Member Adrian Richards, a consultant plastic surgeon at Aurora Clinics in the UK, believes the clip is authentic.

He said the problem occurs when the implant is not secured firmly enough in a 'pocket' the surgeon creates either between the buttock and the pelvic bone or on top of the gluteus maximus.

'It is a complication which is relatively common following buttock implants. It shouldn't really happen because the pocket should be snug so the implant stays where it is.

'This lady's implant is flat on the bottom and coned on the top, but this one has flipped over.'

He said it wouldn't be painful, but would likely need to be removed or the pocket closed up to stop it shifting around.

BUTT IMPLANTS: HOW IT'S DONE

To insert the implant, an incision is usually made where the cheek meets the back of the thigh or in the buttock crease where the scars are less noticeable.

The surgeon then creates a pocket large enough to insert the silicone either under the gluteus maximus muscle or on top of it.

Sometimes fat is taken by liposuction from another area of the body to enhance the shape of the buttocks.

The surgeon will then make sure both buttocks are symmetrical before stitching up the wounds.

But if the pocket is made too big, the implant can slip out.

The procedure is normally performed under general anaesthetic.

An alternative method involves injecting fat into the buttocks.

Buttock implants are popular in South America, where plump bottoms are regarded as sexually desirable.

In recent years, plastic surgery experts have been warning women not to have operations in unapproved clinics after a string of deaths and dodgy practices.

In April last year, a 42-year-old mother-of-three died after buttock implant surgery at a backstreet Las Vegas clinic.

Elena Caro's family begged her not to have the operation, saying she was beautiful as she was, but she went ahead with the surgery.

She was found crying in agony and begging for help after an unlicensed Colombian doctor allegedly dumped her by the side of the road when the procedure went wrong and she died in hospital a short time later.

In December 2009, a former Miss Argentina who was obsessed with maintaining her youthful looks died following surgery to make her buttocks firmer.

Solange Magnano, 38, was rushed to hospital with severe breathing problems after the cosmetic operation.

The mother of eight-year-old twins died from a blocked lung artery after spending three days in a critical condition in intensive care.

Atlanta woman Kimberly Smedley was jailed for three years in July after injecting customers' buttocks with commercial silicone in hotel rooms and using glue and cotton balls to prevent the substance from leaking out.

Federal prosecutors believe Smedley made at least $1.3 million while operating her illegal practice out of hotel rooms in Baltimore, Washington, Detroit, Philadelphia and New York.

In cases where silicone jabs are used, the procedure can cause a blood clot to the lungs known as a pulmonary embolism.

Maybe these women trust the doctor and are probably doing it because they want to feel better about themselves.  I'd love to have a butt implant because I would feel better about myself but can't have it done.  Why would you call a woman an idiot because she wants to improve her looks?  Maybe they have low self esteem or been told how ugly they are for so long they just want to feel good............

Because these women are going to a differen country or to a person they know fully well are not reputable or even a damn Dr

If your taking a flight to a different country in this day and age you are stupid to think its all good. People know why they are going to a different country to get this stuff done. To save money right? What Dr will have you come to a different country to perform surgery for a cheaper price? Ask yourself that
You get what you pay for
The others are getting it from some botched up fake dr knowing it is t right either
Yeah
Idiots

If you want it done for vanity reasons do it the right way and save your money wait on it and do a better job in finding more info out on the Dr performing the surgery.
Even that has no garantees, but at least you know you wont get dumped on the side of the rode in a country you dont live in.

I dont have too much of a butt, but I'd never go through something like this to enhance it. I'd rather workout or something, this butt stuff is getting ridiculous.

What the hell.

So where do you buy pants that fit that butt?

I will never understand people.
