Doing buttock enhancement procedures without a license is bad, no ifs, ands or butts about it.
Authorities in Palm Beach, Fla., are hoping to nip that terrible trend in the bud by arresting Calvin E. Butler, also known as Tamieka Butler, for allegedly injecting silicon into his patients' butts in a West Palm Beach motel and closing the wounds with Krazy Glue, the Miami New Times reported.
Two victims, a male and a female, were admitted to local hospitals with severe infection, pain, bleeding, oozing wounds, and disfigurement, WPTV-TV reported.
The woman, whose name has not been made public, told Sheriff’s deputies that Butler had her remove clothes from the waist down so the suspect could inject silicone into her buttocks with a syringe.
Butler would then mark areas that needed more "fullness" with a felt-tip pen and then, after wiping away any blood or other fluids, would apply "Krazy Glue" to the incisions, the Miami Herald reported.
Butler reportedly charged $200 per injection, which he performed without any gloves or protective clothing, according to WFOR-TV.
The suspect was arrested January 18 and charged with two counts of unlicensed practice of health care profession causing serious bodily harm. He is being held on $15,000 bond.
Botched butt injections seem to be a trend in South Florida, according to NBCMiami.com, which reported that two other cases of illegal injections have occurred in the last 18 months.
