BOOTLEG SILICONE

Everyone read recently about the silicone implants from PIP in France that were taken off the market. Apparently, unscrupulous practitioners are injecting silicone from home improvement centers into various parts of the body. One of the more popular areas is the buttocks.

There was a report of an exotic dancer getting silicone injections into her buttocks by a non-MD. The dancer was hospitalized and x-rays of her lungs showed silicone. Apparently the individual doing the injection got some of the material in her veins which then carried the silicone to her lungs. Scattered reports from around the country are prompting investigations from the FDA and other health care officials.

Always, always, always check out if the "dr." performing your "procedure" is a board certified plastic surgeon. Fort Myers FL Dr. Robert J. Brueck MD FACS meets the requirement.
