Miami Woman Dies After Receiving Butt-Enhancing Injections

Categories: Crime

On April 11, 28-year-old Suyima Torres went into an office in a West Miami-Dade strip mall to receive cosmetic injections in her buttocks. Ten hours later, she was dead.

Police are investigating the case as manslaughter and are still searching for the man who preformed the procedure.

According to CBS Miami, Torres had the procedure done at Cuerpos Health and Aesthetics LLC at 8410 West Flagler Street. Owner Ruth Plana, who has so far not been charged with any wrongdoing, refused to offer any information about the Venezuelan doctor who reportedly preformed the procedure on Torres. Police believe the man may have left the country.

Torres came in that day for her second round of injections. She had paid $2,300 in cash for the injections. The man injected an oily yellow mixture into Torres. Ten hours later she was pronounced dead at Doctor's Hospital.

If the man is ever caught he could be charged with manslaughter related to the unlicensed practice of medicine, CBS reports.

This is far from the first case of death following back-alley butt injections in Miami-Dade. The infamous "Fix-a-Flat butt doctor" Oneal Morris is currently facing charges of manslaughter after one of her patients, Shatarka Nuby, died.

In 2009, New Times chronicled the after-jail life of Donnie Hendrix, the back-alley silicone pumpster responsible for the death of 53-year-old Vera Lawrence.

Some people don't know better, and are looking for a way to enhance themselves, if you are calling her names and saying negative things about her, please think before saying it, a family lost someone they love and no matter how "stupid" her decision was, she's still a human being, show some respect for her family at least

Conspicuously absent from this report is the medical examiner's report. Did she die from the procedure or was it just an unfortunate coincidence?

This is very sad :( condolences to really all of us, but especially to the grieving family. This is testimony to the continued stress women feel under to look a certain way to be valuable. Give women respect for who they are naturally. Praise them for there unique beauty even though it is not the sterotype model of beauty.

If genes did not give you a hot ass, surgery won't help you either.

Women with low self esteem feel that way.

I now many, many women who value themselves for what they are and what they accomplish in their professions, business, or even their personal lives.

I also know many men (myself included) who value women for what they really are and what they accomplish, not by how many pounds of silicone they carry under their skins.
