The Most Common Black Market Procedures
By NewBeauty Editors |
Instead of using fat or FDA-approved implants, liquid silicone and household and automotive products are injected as filling agents, leading to major deformities and possibly even death.
Injectable products, usually those that are not FDA-approved, are often administered to the cheeks, lips, under the eyes, and between the brows, leading to a deformed, stretched out and/or hard appearance.
Local anesthesia is often used to numb the area. Nonsterile operating conditions are typical, which can lead to infections. Damage to the internal organs is common and results are almost always atypical.
Doctor switching (the doctor you meet during your consult isn’t who operates on you) is common during black market breast augmentations. As a result, the physician operating is usually nonboard-certified.
