There are enough scary images and horror stories out there to freak most people out about seeking silicone butt injections and implants, but yet and still, some women seeking that extra lift in their backside still put their health at risk. At one time or another, you’ve probably seen the deformed buttocks of Renee Talley online. The 45-year-old uploaded a video to YouTube in 2012 of her bad implants, and she had this to say to women thinking about undergoing similar procedures:
“This is the dangers of butt implants… Ladies do not ever do silicone butt injections they are toxic to your body. Butt implants are not any better, too many risk, infection, displacement of the implant and they feel like rocks not to mention look very unnatural. Love the skin your in…
Here is what happens when implants go bad.. Please do not flag it can help save a life. This is my personal experience I almost died from this surgery…”
In the video (check it out below), Talley can be seen flipping one of the implants in her butt inside out to show how wrong they had gone. Talley was just featured on the new E! program, Botched and was seeking help from Dr. Terry Dubrow and Dr. Paul Nassif to help fix the damage that her buttocks had sustained. In her profile, she talked about why she had her multiple surgeries in the first place, and the damage they had on her already low self-esteem.
“This whole procedure has affected my life in so many different ways. I don’t really look in the mirror at myself anymore because I’m not happy with the way my butt looks.”
She said in 2010 that she did silicone injections because she was having a mid-life crisis of sorts. She wanted to have a fuller backside like many women do at times. But Talley says that after the injections, she started to feel terrible.
“I was having a lot of fatigue, I had a lot of pain and sensitivity in my butt. I was having stomach issues and bathroom problems and it progressively got worse.”
After visiting the doctor and having an MRI, Talley found out that the silicone had moved up through her back and down her legs, attacking her organs. She even developed an autoimmune disease from it all. Doctors told her that if they removed the silicone, it would cause possible deformities because the silicone was in her tissue. But instead of leaving well enough alone, she made another bad decision:
“Me being vain, I didn’t want that. I decided to put an implant in to fill in the space where the silicone was removed. They wanted me to wait six months, and I said no.”
The end result was that the implants wound up forming into hard disks in the middle of both of her cheeks, as they appeared in that YouTube video. She had the implants removed and her backside now sags a little. Though Talley sought help of Dr. Nassif and Dr. Dubrow via Botched, and they said that a butt lift would help repair her butt, they didn’t think she needed any other surgeries for a while. They came to this conclusion after he claimed that she had body dysmorphia. According to Anxiety and Depression Association of America, body dysmorphia is “a body-image disorder characterized by persistent and intrusive preoccupations with an imagined or slight defect in one’s appearance.” The doctors felt that she needed to work on that before trying to go back under the knife again. In the end, Talley owned up to her mistakes on the show:
“It’s something I did to myself so I’m going to have to learn to live with it. I’m probably never going to be able to fix the imperfection. If you ruin it, you can’t go back and fix it.”
