What’s the difference between butt injections and implants? For some, it’s the difference between life and death.
he story of exotic dancer Vanity Wonder is quite the interesting one indeed. The mother of two who spoke to spoke to Eamon Holmes and Ruth Langsford on the This Morning Show on ITV revealed that she spent $15,000 on butt injections which left her bottom looking “like a sack of oranges” and could have killed her. Her obsession with increasing the size of her behind began, according to her, in the workplace.
“When I heard about butt injections I thought it sounded stupid,” Wonder confessed. “But after a year in that environment as a dancer, everyone was doing it, it wasn’t such a foreign concept. I thought I might as well try it.”
“Then it became a competition – not for men but against other women. So many of us were doing it because we wanted to better than the other person.”
She then revealed that she developed an infection and the only option she had to fix the situation was to get the more traditional silicone implants. “It did become addictive but it got infected so I was left with lumps,” she said. “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.”
“Truthfully I would like smaller butt,” she said, revealing her dissatisfaction with the current size of her posterior. “But I’m happy I didn’t die and still here for my children. I did so much dumb stuff with my body I’m lucky that I’m still living. When I look in the mirror, I think I would like a smaller butt, it’s hard to go shopping, but I’m just happy I’m still here.”
“You can get implants but injections made freely into your butt is not legal in any sense of the word,” Wonder warned.
Vanity Wonder has written a book titled, Shot Girls about her experiences with the injections.Follow us on Twitter @YNaija
