LAS VEGAS, Nev. – With her smooth skin and wavy, honeyed hair, Elena Caro was celebrated as a beauty by her husband and teenage daughter, who often told her that she didn’t need cosmetic surgery. But at 42, Caro wanted firmer skin and a younger figure, so she secretly booked an appointment with a medical office recommended by a close friend. The quest for perfection might have ended her life, police said. Caro was found walking the streets of Las Vegas in agony Saturday after buttocks enhancement surgery that authorities say was performed by two Colombian nationals in the back room of a tile business. She was pronounced dead minutes later at North Vista Hospital in North Las Vegas. Her cause of death was not immediately determined, pending toxicology tests and an investigation.
This report is still developing, but seems quite a bit like a previous story we featured of a death after silicone butt injections.
Booty injections not infrequently go badly. Qualified doctors tend to not offer them, so people can find themselves in not-so-qualified hands. Buttock enhancement is not a mainstream plastic surgery procedure probably because it is less predictable than many other operations. In particular, booty augmentation by injection can be very dangerous and has been associated with deaths like in this case usually due to the injected substance finding its way to the heart or brain by a process called embolization.
The most typical case involves embolization of silicone gel after injection. We will see if that was what happened here as the story develops.

This is British wannabe hip-hop star Claudia Aderotimi, who died after an illegal cosmetic procedure to enhance her bottom went tragically wrong. The university student, 20, flew to Philadelphia, US, for silicone jabs to increase the curve of her buttocks. But Claudia, of Hackney, East London, suffered chest pains after the injections and died in hospital. US cops are investigating.
Silicone injections lead to nightmares. Read the section here at the blog entitled “Injection Hell.” There are quite a few stories.
Points to Keep You Safe:
(1) Injectable substances are not all the same. Silicone gel injections carry risk. In small quantities we can get “Lisa Rinna Lips” which are inflamed painful lumps of silicone and scar that only occasionally can be cut out without deformity. In larger quantities (such as booty shots) the stuff can get into the blood vessels and travel to the heart and lungs leading to death. Go to a reputable plastic surgeon when considering soft tissue augmentation. You will find we don’t offer silicone injections.
(2) You are unlikely to meet a reputable plastic surgeon at a hotel room. We occasionally present to groups at hotel meeting halls as promotions. Meeting you at a hotel is a maybe. Operating there is a giant red flag.
