Oct 16, 2012 – Buttocks Injection Gone Wrong: Woman Left With No Legs After Infection (Apryl Michelle Brown)

Apryl Michelle Brown, a subject of constant teasing by friends and family on her flat booty had suffered insecurity for years.

To feel better, she promises herself to buy a better backside.

“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

In 2004, her quest for a better backside almost killed her.

According to her, she paid an unlicensed person to do buttocks injection for her. She couldn’t recall if she paid $500 or $1000 for the industrial-grade silicone injection.

Few months later, she started feeling irritation and pain which resulted in blackened skin.

In early 2006, the silicone had hardened causing serious pain and infection which resulted in a life-saving amputation of her limbs in 2011.

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 falls commit the same mistake.”

    May God be with her, sometime in life we don’t need someone to make us do what we don’t want to do is better we live the way God create us why do need to add or remove. I employed everybody to lean from her is another great lesson of humanity.
