Meet April Brown, a woman who was once a cosmetologist and fashion designer, but now a multiple amputee after receiving illegal butt injections.
Brown has a warning for women who may consider amateur cosmetic procedures. An improper buttocks injection led to a nightmare for her.
Professionals removed her limbs last year to save her life.
“I got the butt implants five years ago,” said Brown. “For five years, I lived in pain. Excruciating pain.”
April Brown won’t identify the unlicensed practitioner who injected her with silicone. She will only say it was somewhere near Western and Manchester. Brown tells us, her own lack of self-esteem issues are mostly to blame.
“They call it butt injections,” she says. “These things are done at pumping parties. They call it medical grade silicone but a lot of it is industrial grade silicone.”
But Brown feels she’s a survivor, empowered by the words of loved ones who feared she would die.
