The price of beauty can be deadly when trying to augment and alter the human body surgically. Here are seven women who unfortunately died during or after receiving surgical procedures such as butt injections.
Death of BET Employee
On May 30, BET employee and Maryland woman Kelly Mayhew, 34, died just hours after receiving butt injections from an unlicensed “doctor” in a Queens basement. The suspect fled the scene immediately after Mayhew started to show signs of complications. The New York Daily News states that Mayhew’s family friend Kem Harris felt that “her death just came out of nowhere.”
Butt Implants for Career Purposes
Four years ago, United Kingdom woman and Thames Valley University student Claudia Aderotimi, 20, died in Philadelphia after receiving illegal butt implants. According to Daily Mail, Aderotimi’s friends claimed that she believed “a ‘bigger booty’ would help in her quest to appear in more music videos.”
