The Incredible Real Dangers of Illegal Butt Implants 

There’s a scary growing trend with dramatically negative outcomes and health effects hitting the cosmetic enhancement world today.  What is often referred to as “back-alley surgeries” or “black market augmentations” has resulted in serious consequences for countless victims and has even claimed the lives of some in their quest for beauty.  K. Michelle, an American R&B singer, songwriter, and television personality, is one of those victims who suffered severe consequences after undergoing an illicit procedure to enlarge her butt.  This year she had her butt implants removed and she sat down with Dr. Oz to discuss her experience along with the doctor who performed her life-changing reconstructive procedure, Dr. Michael Niccole.  

K. Michelle’s Decision To Have Her Butt Implants Removed 

K. Michelle has been very open about her butt implants and her decision to have them removed.  “No amount of beauty is worth your health,” said K. Michelle.  When she decided to say goodbye to her surgically enhanced behind, she turned to Dr. Niccole, founder and Medical Director of CosmetiCare Plastic Surgery Center and MedSpa in Newport Beach, California.

Dr. Niccole Performs K. Michelle’s Reconstructive Surgery

In K. Michelle’s original illicit and dangerous procedure, tiny pellets were injected into her buttocks.  These foreign objects, hydrophilic particles, were created to expand to 5 times their original size as they absorbed blood and body fluids.  This an illegal/outlawed technique that often results in deformities, misshapen buttocks, and pain/discomfort, or even more serious complications. 

Dr. Niccole, a double-board certified plastic surgeon and expert in performing Brazilian Butt Lift procedures, was able to save K. Michelle from a lifetime of pain and untold consequences by removing hundreds of the pellets from her buttocks.  However, as he explained to Dr. Oz, some had worked their way into the muscle tissues and nerve endings and could not be fully removed.  During the complicated reparative surgery, Dr. Niccole further helped reshape K. Michelle’s buttocks by re-sculpting the existing tissue until it was the size, shape, and proportion that she had intended it to be.

How To Avoid Garage Clinics And Dangerous Implants    

It’s important to make sure your plastic surgeon is board certified, has plenty of experience with buttocks enlargement (implants), and to ask for at least 3 references.  Follow-up with these references and ask about their experience, any side-effects, and the outcomes of their procedures.
