"Caulk" Butt Implants Hospitalize Six New Jersey Women

Monday, March 08, 2010

Six New Jersey women are recovering in the hospital after receiving black-market implants for their buttocks.

Police in Essex County say their procedures were done by unlicensed surgeons ... Who apparently used non-medical grade silicone.

One poison expert likened the material to caulk used to seal plumbing fixtures in bathrooms.

The state department of health has not identified the women ... Nor released information on where they received their bogus surgeries.

No arrests have been made. The six patients received anti-biotic treatment to fight infections, and are now recovering.
