Buttock Cosmetic Surgery Gone Wrong Proves Fatal For Student

August 20, 2013

Claudia Aderotimi, a British student who dreamed of being a hip hop star and travelled to America to go under the knife for butt enhancement treatment, has died as a result of suspected cosmetic surgery negligence Buttock Cosmetic Surgery Gone Wrong Proves Fatal For Student

Believing a ‘bigger booty’ would assist her in fulfilling her dreams of starring in more music videos, the 20 year old Thames Valley student sought cosmetic surgery treatment after being rejected at auditions when directors discovered she had been wearing padded trousers to enlarge her bottom.

As a result of experiencing cosmetic surgery gone wrong, Miss Aderotimi developed chest pains just hours after her operation which took place at a budget hotel where the woman was injected with illegal silicone injections.

Hospitalised immediately after the instance of cosmetic surgery negligence, Miss Aderotimi was found to have a silicone filler leaking into bloodstream which caused her to suffer a fatal heart attack.

Believed to be an early 21st birthday present to herself, Miss Aderotimi travelled to Philadelphia for treatment to enhance her buttock complexion inspired by celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez, Beyoncé and Nicki Minaj.

As a result of the cosmetic surgery gone wrong, which is reported to have cost the victim £1300 to undertake, Miss Aderotimi died just 90 minutes after she was first admitted to hospital. The cosmetic surgery cowboy who performed the cosmetic surgery gone wrong had fled the scene before the young woman began complaining of chest pains.

Commenting on the case of cosmetic surgery negligence, Dr Rajiv Grover, president-elect of the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons, said: “Buttock augmentation isn’t a very commonly done procedure here, which is probably why these girls have resorted to going abroad.

“If correctly done, it involves implanting solid silicone implants into the buttock just like breast implants.”

Investigating if this instance of cosmetic surgery gone wrong was due to the use of a cheap ‘industrial’ silicone, normally used as a sealant, American detectives are seeking confirmation of the cause of death linked to this case of cosmetic surgery negligence.
