British-Born Nigerian Claudia Aderotimi dies after butt enhancement surgery.


Claudia was a 20 year old student and dancer who thought enhancing her butt would make her more attractive and get her into more music videos.

She traveled to the US to do the surgery and developed chest pains and struggled for breath for 12 hours after she had the illegal silicone injections at a budget hotel. She was taken to hospital but could not be saved.

A preliminary examination found the silicone filler had leaked into her bloodstream, leading to heart failure.

American detectives are investigating whether she was treated with cheap ‘industrial’ silicone, normally used as a sealant, rather than medical-grade material used in breast implant surgery.

It was not the first time Miss Aderotimi had had the procedure. She is believed to have been treated in November and the latest injection on Monday may have been a ‘top-up’ procedure.

Terrible. May she rest in peace. I'm sure her original bum wasn't bad either. Padded pants work very well i dare say!

I read about this on CNN and was like oops, not a Nigerian again! Such a shame, it's a lesson for all those desiring cosmetic procedures. Research the Doctor you intend to use and read all the reviews on the pros and cons of that type of procedure. Apperently, it's illegal to use liquid silicon in the US. She may not have known this. rip though

@anon 2.06 stella had one of the best surgeons and she still died of complications
its not always about research
we all need to just learn to accept the things we cant change about our bodies
SMH!

Anon February 10, 2011 3:25 PM; Stella Obasanjo didn't have one of the best surgeons. If she did, the operation may not have taken place. She was rejected in Germany and France until Daisy Danjuma took her to the Marbella Cosmetic Surgery hospital! The ones that rejected her knew she was not in a condition to undergo surgery but she took a short cut and her life ended.

@Be-inspired: Your comment is callous, mean-spirited and just in bad taste! How can you be cracking jokes about this chick's death? I find the fact that this situation makes you "LOL" and "ROTFL" highly disturbing.Was the girl shallow, misguided and foolish for risking her life like this? Sure, but she still deserves some modicum of respect after death. You shouldn't be laughing about such a tragic turn of events.

@VJ, you may love your flat butt but who do you intend to attract with it. Not me of course because the ikebe must be monstrous for me to be moved. Just don't visit quack cosmetic surgeons. I also love 38DD boob size and if you have anything less, I will never hire you in my office.-Gbenga.

She must have missed that episode of The Tyra Banks show where two women who had the same procedure, suffered the same setback and barely managed to survive but with grave consequences they must live with for the rest of their lives. For that matter, she must have missed the countless shows and reports warning women and men about doing their homework when it comes to plastic surgery. The friend who accompanied Claudia and had the same procedure done, though lucky to be alive, will probably have to deal with those consequences in future. There are no shortcuts. If it sounds too good to be true, it is. The only way anyone should attempt to have such a surgery is with a board licensed plastic surgeon who has a record you can investigate and who has lots of experience doing the particular surgery you're interested in and if you hear silicone in the butt. RUN. It is illegal in the U.S. hence the reason the quack they went to was performing it in the hotel room and not at a hospital. Fat deposit injections are what they use. While I understand the societal pressures that leave people feeling like they are never good enough physically or otherwise, it is obvious that all the signs to walk in the other direction were there but they chose to ignore them. Nonetheless, I hope that her soul will rest in peace.

For every plastic surgery that goes wrong, thousands go right.

So please stop with the condemnation. Only issue here was she went to a quack dat's all...

This Be-Inspired is just a mean person. Everybody falls victim to vanity. Come on even if it's through natural procedures like exercising, is it not because you want to look and feel better. Wearing weaves, make-up, using body magic it's all about beauty. Humans are naturally attracted to beautiful and well-endowed people or skinny people (depending on the culture) and if anyone of you had read the article properly you would note that she was rejected from performing in a video because her bum was too flat. Yes, she cowered and went for a cheap surgery which ended her life but thousands of people do it. People do surgery for various reasons and not many die. She wasn't careful and that was what caused her death. Besides, people die from various causes everyday. And you people would come here spitting holier than thou with your padded underwear, fake diets, wishful thinking and attempt to condemn anyone. You should be ashamed of yourselves. May her soul rest in peace. I only wish she had been more careful.

ok so from this, it wasnt a surgery!! as in not in the hospital, the procedure took place in a hotel by a transgendered named "Lilian".. "Black Madam"....
that was careless of her though.
I'm sorry but I hold her responsible for her death.
