Hot & Healthy | Things You Should Know: All For the Booty


hotandhealthy_logo

Big butts became all the rage in mainstream pop culture after curvaceous stars like Beyonce, Jennifer Lopez, and Nicki Minaj walked into the spotlight. Ever since then, some women have been dying to have huge backsides, literally. Women have been turning to unlicensed, untrained street doctors on the black market to achieve the booty of their dreams.

Street doctors have been known to inject anything from fix-a-flat to silicone, from the home improvement store into their victims. One such street doctor is 53 year old transgender Tracey Lynn Garner (born Morris Garner) of Jackson Mississippi.

Garner is charged with the death of Karima Gordon, a veteran and aspiring model from Georgia. Gordon traveled with a friend to Jackson to get “silicone” butt injections. Within the hour, Gordon became ill during the drive home. She died a few days later at a Georgia hospital. The injections had created blood clots which traveled to her heart resulting in her death.

Marilyn Hale, another victim who lost her life at the hands of Garner, received butt injections in 2010. Death doesn’t always come immediately like it did for these two women, as shown in the case of Shatarka Nuby of Florida. Nuby received numerous black market butt injections over a period of five years before she died from respiratory failure caused by the silicone.

Even when underground procedures don’t result in death they can have dire consequences. Apryl Michelle Brown was teased as a child for having a “flat” “pancake butt”, so when she got the opportunity to enhance her bottom at a fraction of what it normally costs, she took it. She was injected with bathroom sealant. After five years of pain and coming close to death, Brown, lost her lower arms, lower legs, and buttocks to amputation during a series of 27 operations doctors performed to save her life while she was in a two month induced coma.

It may come as a shock to know that women are not the only ones turning to street doctors for enhancements and paying dearly for it. In 2012, one man lost his life to a silicone embolism after receiving a penile injection in a New Jersey apartment. And it’s not just the package men are concerned about. I’m not sure what the statistics are for males who get butt procedures done underground, however, men accounted for 6.2 % of legitimate cosmetic butt enhancement procedures in 2012. In 1997 this number was only 2.2%. Even before the male population began to embrace butt enhancements for themselves, male-to-female transgender individuals have been plumping up their derrieres to achieve more feminine curves for years.

Don’t think that only people with dreams of being the next big video vixen or Calvin Klein model crave fatter fannies either. Though it may be more common for someone with (or hoping for) a career in front of a camera or on a stage to seek booty enhancement, regular folks want their booties to look good too. If you or your guy are feeling a little slack in the back, the right pair of underwear can solve your problem without all of the risks that go along with surgical enhancement. Yes, there is now underwear on the market made specifically to enhance the male booty. The guys can now choose between padded underwear that give their backside (and frontside) a fuller look, and undergarments with strategically placed straps to lift and shape what they already have. Another alternative is to learn to love what God gave you and *@#% anybody with a negative opinion about it.
