0 Butt Enhancement - the Wrong Way, UK/USA

A 20-year-old British woman, Claudia Aderotimi, died following a hotel room cosmetic buttocks injection - perhaps yet another casualty of dangerous, corner-cutting enhancement procedures.

Police believe Aderotimi, who was visiting from the U.K. with three friends, received the injection at the Hampton Inn in Southwest Philadelphia, local ABC affiliate WPVI-TV reported.

Medics were called to the hotel in response to Aderotimi's reports of difficulty breathing and chest pains. She was rushed to Mercy Fitzgerald Hospital where she was pronounced dead.

Plastic surgeons renewed public warnings concerning non-approved facilities and non-certified cosmetic practitioners: Cutting corners in hopes of a cheaper nip-tuck is dangerous, and potentially life-threatening.

Aderotimi and one of the other women with her came to the U.S. specifically for injectable enhancement procedures, one for hip and buttocks and Aderotimi just for buttocks, police said. Aderotimi paid $1,800 for the procedure, which is only a fraction of what she would have paid for a similar procedure in the U.K.

Numerous other operations and/or botched surgery victims around the country have been reported in the past few years as the drive to surgically emulate curvaceous celebrities leads many women to sacrifice safety for affordability.

"We've heard of people having caulk or industrial grade silicone, neither of which is approved for use anywhere in the body, injected into their buttocks," said Dr. Felmont Eaves, a North Carolina-based plastic surgeon and president of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
