Butt injections are a new trend that many women are indulging in. However, the procedure can be risky. So risky in fact, a Mississippi man is facing charges for the death of two women whom he performed illegal silicone butt injections on.
Tracey Lynn Garner, who also goes by the name Morris Garner, has been charged with “depraved heart murder” of an Alabama woman that received a butt-augmentation procedure from Garner. Garner had already been accused of a Georgia woman’s death from the same procedure.
Butt injections can be extremely risky, not only because of the potential for infections and pulmonary embolisms, but also because professional doctors rarely perform the procedure. Most implants are administered by non-medical professionals in places such as a beauty salon. The FDA has not approved this procedure because of the high risk for pain, disfigurement and potential respiratory problems.
Garner was operating out of his home and doesn’t have medical licenses. Garner allegedly found his patients online. If found guilty of depraved heart murder, Garner could spend life in prison.
