Is it a trend? Another cosmetic surgery arrest.

I think we are entering trend territory here. Two women in Tampa are in critical condition after going to a cosmetologist in search of "J-Lo style bottoms." Silicone was injected, and it did not go well.

Here's a writeup in the Daily Mail about it:

Andrea Lee, 30, suffered total kidney failure after being 'poisoned' with what is believed to be industrial silicone.

Her friend Zakiya Teagle, 33, is also in a critical condition in a Florida hospital after her internal organs stopped functioning.

Police in Tampa, Florida, are now searching for the fake doctor who carried out the cosmetic procedures on both women.

Sharhonda Lindsay, 32, has gone on the run after the two women were rushed to hospital with critical injuries caused by her injections."

There has been a significant uptick in these in the last few months. It's never worth it unless you can go to a board-certified doc.
