An American mother of two showed off the results of her back-alley butt injections—which has left her virtually disfigured for life—to shocked viewers of a UK coffee clutch.
30-year-old Vanity Wonder spent over $15,000 to enhance the size of her hips and buttocks dramatically, in a procedure that is not approved by the FDA or the Board of American Plastic Surgery. Vanity revealed to This Morning hosts Eamon Holmes and Ruth Langsford how a "doctor" injected her with what was claimed to be soy bean oil and how the injections felt like being struck by lightning and that they would often leak, but this didn't deter her.
Brown initially wanted the enhancements performed on her to help with her job as an exotic dancer. She eventually developed a dangerous infection from the illegal injections, which left her derriere looking like "a sack of oranges". Brown admitted that "It did become addictive but it got infected so I was left with lumps. So I had a choice, I could have a medium-sized lumpy butt or keep padding it with silicone to make it better. So it wasn't my goal to get this big but padding it with silicone is how this happened."
Brown did finally stop with the injections, but only after she faced jail time and having her children removed from her custody. "Having the infection didn't make me stop. It was only when I was faced with jail and being away from my kids," she told the stunned audience.
Brown has not had any injections since last year and has written a book— titled Shot Girls—to warn others about the dangers of illegal cosmetic procedures.
