A Colombian transvestite suffers agony after receiving getting butt implants filled with airplane engine oil, reported local media Thursday.
Four months ago the 25-year old transvestite, who goes by name “Oswaldo,” underwent the procedure at a clinic located in a garage in a town south of Cali.
“[The filler] was so thick that it was necessary to push the nozzle of the syringe with a piece of wood because the beautician’s hands weren’t strong enough,” Oswaldo told a reporter.
The worst part, said Oswaldo, was the huge hole the injection left in his rear end. It was so big that they had to fill it with cotton balls and seal it with “adoro,” a glue used to attach artifical nails. The procedure cost 900,000 pesos or 500.00 USD.
The suffering diva reported that the last month has been miserable as the chemical started having effects on his body. “I have itching. Red bumps on my buttocks that are as hard as wood, it hurts to walk and I feel suffocated.”
Oswaldo’s backstreet surgery follows the death of a transsexual former beauty queen in northern Colombia last month after botched butt implants led to heart and lung failure.
Unfortunately, this tragic story is not uncommon Colombia where cosmetic surgery is both abundant and cheap. Those less lucky than Oswaldo have not lived to tell the tale.
