We’re sad to report that there’s been another tragic outcome from an unqualified practitioner (an understatement) administering an unsafe injection.
Mayra Lissette Contreras, just 22 years old, died of respiratory distress following buttocks injections from two Los Angeles sisters running an illegal injectable filler business. Guadalupe and Alejandra Viveros, neither of whom are doctors, used silicone.
The Viveros sisters had only just gotten out of jail in the Los Angeles area, having posted bail after being charged with practicing medicine without a license. Now, however, they are believed to have fled to Mexico.
