Amputating part of all her limbs was the only way to save April Brown's life The one-time successful cosmetologist and fashion designer is now a multiple amputee because of butt implants.
The Los Angeles woman suffered such severe infections following the unlicensed cosmetic procedures, removing her hands and feet was the only way to save her life, Brown told NBC.
"I got the butt implants five years ago," said Brown. "For five years, I lived in pain. Excruciating pain.
"They call it butt injections," aded the mother of two. "These things are done at pumping parties. They call it medical grade silicone but a lot of it is industrial grade silicone."
Brown is refusing to identify who did her "implants" but her story is a familiar one. As RadarOnline.com reported, a transgender Florida woman was arrested after injecting a mix that included cement into several women who wanted fuller butts.
