SAD: Buttocks Injection Leaves Woman With No Legs

Teased by her family and friends about her flat “pancake” booty, Apryl Michelle Brown had always been insecure about her backside. Once she got enough money, she told herself, she’d buy herself a better one. “I didn’t know if I wanted to look like Janet Jackson or J. Lo,” the Los Angeles cosmetologist, 46, says in an exclusive interview featured in the November issue of ESSENCE magazine. “I just wanted a new, bigger booty.”Pls click to continue reading. Btw, thats the woman up there.

Tragically, her quest for curves cost her all her limbs and almost her life.

In 2004, Brown says she paid a “pumper,” an unlicensed person, to inject industrial-grade silicone into her

buttocks. Brown can’t recall how much the woman actually charged — maybe $500, maybe $1,000 — but

over time, she says, the area became intensely irritated and painful, and the skin blackened. By early 2006

she says the silicone had hardened, causing severe pain and infection, ultimately requiring her to have

lifesaving amputation of her limbs last year.

Now adjusting to her new life with prosthetics, Brown shares her story — and her warning for others

tempted to check out “pumping parties” — with writer Amy Elisa Keith in ESSENCE. “I was left here for a purpose,” she says. “I have to get the word out so that nobody else makes this choPl

    So very sad, but we reap what we sow! Its important to appreciate what God has given us! God loves variety; that’s why He has created men who have different tastes when it comes the choice of their ‘woman’! Some like me are attracted to women who are slim with a medium pelvic girdle! That’s me!

    Wats with the backside anyway? Women learn to accept how God created you and for sure despite how you look, there will always be someone who will trully cherish and love you and above all God loves you exactly how he created you..

    Reminds me of Nick Minaj From a small booty to a big booty lol!Big boobs, big lips all plastic lol!

    I blame men for this – especially black men who like big bottoms. The woman was trying to please the male species hence went through this ordeal. If only men would stop demanding big bottoms, women would not feel under pressure.

  12. me   October 15, 2012 at 4:37 pm

    Look wether you have a bend bottom or a big bottom you are fearfuly and wonderfuly made in God’s image
    .. do not argue with God

    What sad indeed?, didnt she ask for it?. Thats just being stupid with obsession of self image compounded by low self-esteem aggravated by sheer low IQ.

    @ Janet C, walasa I agree with you 100 per cent, these men kuti bakulemanika, I’m a victim I’ve used every product just to make my face look as fresh as the women my husband sleeps with, very sad situation I’m in indeed and the poor girl in pic

    Sad,when I complain about my big booty, other women go to such extremes. Am touched and I will never complain about my backside again. Kayalesunshafye ayene mumutende.

    @ Janet c- ur leaving in the past, things have changed. Men now go for slim fit thus the new name around(ka portable).

    I am impressed with the courage she has of facing such an ordeal. many could have given up. I trust her confidence is in none else than the great Lord, king Jesus.

    So sad, but it’s good she’s become a mouth piece to warn others. The irony is that while some of us wish for a flatter bottom some wish for a bigger bottom. True contentment is in Christ and not what people say you look like.

    Continue being brave

    Sad! God did not make a mistake. The heart is really what matters not big booties, if only people would realise that!
