Woman Charged for Performing Illegal Butt Boosting Injections

Ruth Manuel-Logan, Black Voices, November 24, 2010

A New Jersey model was criminally charged for running an illegal butt-boosting injection business that sent six of her female clients to the hospital with serious infections.

Anivia Cruz-Dilworth was indicted Tuesday for practicing medicine without a license. According to court documents, Cruz-Dilworth told the women that she was a trained professional and that she would inject them with a substance the 28-year-old called “hydro-gel,” which is supposed to enhance the buttock.

Instead, the New Brunswick resident injected her clients with a silicone sealant, the very same material used to caulk bathtubs. The injection sites were also sealed with Krazy Glue. Cruz-Dilworth, who has never been medically trained or educated to perform these injections, subjected the women to serious infections, ranging from cellulitis (a serious bacterial infection of the skin that spreads) to necrosis (tissue death). Several of the woman had to undergo multiple surgeries.

According to investigators, Cruz-Dilworth would charge her clients a discounted rate of $650 to $1,200 for a procedure that would normally range from $10,000 to $15,000. The plus-sized model would usually travel to a client’s home, but sometimes they would come to her apartment, located in a gated community, to receive the services. {snip}
