A transgendered woman from Miami, Florida says her face is mangled after going under the knife of accused phony plastic surgeon Oneal Ron Morris, who she claims shot cement and tire sealant into her face.
Rajee Narinesingh said she learned of the faux doc’s service via the transgendered circuit, and was compelled to take a chance as she didn’t have enough cash for a licensed doctor, but desperately wanted some tweaks to her appearance.
“It becomes so dire that you want to match your outside with your inside that you’re willing to roll the dice and take your chances,” Narinesingh, 48, told CBS Miami. “As a transgender person, you’re thinking, ‘Oh, my God, I can start to look like I want to look like and I don’t have to spend a lot of money.’”
Following the procedure from Morris, 30, Narinesingh said she was stricken with lumpy cheeks, a deformed chin and a bloated upper lip, immediately signaling something had gone very wrong.
“I have learned my lesson — I could have died — I know that now,” Narinesingh said.
Morris, who is also transgendered, was arrested earlier this month on charges of practicing medicine without a license with serious bodily injury. Others have stepped forward with horror stories of procedures from Morris’ scalpel, as well.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, born a man but living as a woman, Morris was arrested after it came to light she had posed as a doctor and charged an unidentified woman $700 for a series of butt-enhancing injections, consisting of a bizarre cocktail of cement, flat-tire sealant and mineral oil, in May 2010.
The poor victim from Miami, Florida, was overcome with pain but too embarrassed to tell a doctor what had happened despite multiple trips to the hospital.
A top plastic surgeon told RadarOnline.com that the ‘procedure’ is not surprisingly, highly dangerous, and could have killed the patients.
“I’ve never heard of anyone using something like this, but I guess you can go to any hardware store and inject something into someone,” Long Beach, California-based Dr. Marcel Daniels said. “It’s a horrible idea.”
Dr. Daniels revealed how the bogus shots do not only have extreme medical side affects but could even lead to death for the unsuspecting victims who were looking for a quick fix.
“This is a totally unlicensed, untrained individual,” he revealed. “She could inject it into the wrong blood vessel and cause an embolism, which can kill.”
As the illegal medical procedure wasn’t carried out in a sterile environment, there was also the risk of bacterial infection.
“There is a high risk of tissues death or multiple abscesses forming,” explained the surgeon, who went on to add, “Such toxins can cause an inflammatory response that creates incredibly painful nodules that can burst through the skin, cause open wounds and lead to even more scaring and disfigurement.”
Dr. Daniels said that the sad case is yet another cautionary tale about trusting someone to do something to your body before you’ve done a little research.
“People are too desperate to alter their appearance and it overwhelms their sense of caution,” he told RadarOnline.com.
“Obviously, the price was appealing for the victims, but sometimes you get what you pay for. Shopping for bargains are not a good idea when it comes to surgery,” Dr. Daniels cautioned.
