Caulk and Tuck: Women Hospitalized After Being Injected With Commercial Silicone in Buttock Enhancements

Six women in New Jersey have been hospitalized after undergoing cosmetic procedures for buttock-enhancements. The unlicensed providers used commercial rather than medical silicone — the same material used in bathroom caulk.

The silicon used was a diluted version of non-medical-grade silicone that you can buy at Home Depot.

There is no mention of the providers or any criminal investigation in the coverage. It is presumably not just a tort but a crime to conduct unlicensed surgeries and use non-medical material.

  1. Byron,

    Actually this thread has been quite devoid of blue language. No one was forced to view the video and there was fair warning. Many of the comments are funny.

  2. The one thing that I took away from the video is, caulk is cheap. The girl in the video was all caulk and no action.

  3. FFLEO:

    nothing prurient was implied in any of my posts, I cant speak for the others.

    The video was about caulking and I took it as such. It was very informative and presented in a manor that holds your attention.:)

  4. Ms. EM,

    Your Couplet was appropriate–too bad your PG-10 follows after part of the thread that might be rated XXX.

  5. It helps my wounds. Burns a little, but no question, it helps. I also like the saltwater of the ocean, on my skin and thru my nostrils.

  6. Caulk Haiku:

    The north wind blows cold –
    re-caulk all windows and doors,
    leave your bum alone.

  7. A Caulk Couplet

    Caulk’s for filling crevices and crannies–
    Not for augmenting ladies’ fannies.

    I figure that terse verse should get a PG-10 rating.

  8. If by ever should come the day, where caulk gets outweighed by demand will be the day when the caulk hit the highway.

  9. Duh:

    she might use so much that one caulk supplier may not be enough. But looking at caulk from a macroeconomic model I would say you are correct, there is more caulk than cracks that need filling.

  10. Byron,

    You old capitalist! I don’t think supply will ever be outweighed by demand. 🙂

  11. FF LEO–

    So ya be thinkin’ the “Fesser” has an ulterior motive in postin’ about subjects sech as having low grade silicone injected into one’s buttocks in order to have the prominence of one’s booty enhanced, do ya? Mebbe he isn’t lookin’ for outta character comments–but tryin’ to remove our masks and found out who we really iz.
