A court in Los Angeles has charged a woman and her daughter for the murder of a 26-year-old Karissa Rajpaul who died after undergoing an illegal butt surgery they performed on her.
According to reports, Karissa Rajpaul shared a video of herself on social media during the operation, which took place at a private home in the Encino neighbourhood in Los Angeles in September 2020, the Los Angeles Police Department told NBC4.
She moved to LA from South Africa to try and work in the porn industry, received three separate procedures and passed away immediately after the third procedure.
“These individuals have no medical training,” Alan Hamilton, LAPD deputy chief, told ABC7.
“They’re not experienced and they’re putting people’s lives at risk.”
Police have arrested and charged Libby Adame and her daughter, Alicia Gomez, with murder.
Now the police department says it is worried there could be more victims and is encouraging women to come forward.
“As we looked into this investigation, we did find that it is occurring a lot,” Bob Dinlocker, an LAPD detective, told NBC4.
“The internet is filled with these horror stories where they’re cutting the medical grade silicone with the stuff that you would caulk your windows with.”
He said once some of these chemicals – that are not intended for use in humans – hit the bloodstream they attack the heart, the brain, and the kidneys.
LAPD is warning women to avoid these underground procedures, which some people seek out because they are less expensive than having the procedure done by a professional.
Police said Adame and Gomez were charging $3,500 to $4,500 for the butt lift, compared to $10,000 to $15,000 that a board-certified professional would charge, NBC4 reported.
In recent years, Brazilian butt lifts have become increasingly popular and it is the riskiest cosmetic surgery procedure.
According to a survey by the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, buttock lifts increased by 77.6% from 2015 to 2019.
