Woman exposes black market world of butt injections

On Tuesday night, HLN’s Dr. Drew was joined by a mother-of-two who spent thousands of dollars on illegal butt injections.

Vanity Wonder, 30, has since written a book entitled “Shot Girls”, where she exposes the secret world of black market cosmetic procedures.

“Girls see me healthy and walking around and talking and they say, ‘Oh, you know, I like Vanity's body and I think that Vanity looks really good,’” she told Dr. Drew. “I want them to understand … you might not be as lucky.”

She explained, “What happened is after my first time going to go get it done, it became a competition. I was, like, ‘Oh, you know, she's got a bigger butt -- she's got a bigger butt -- I want a bigger butt.’ Around my fifth time getting injections, it got infected, so I had all these lumps all over my butt. I was faced with a choice. Could I stay with the medium-sized lumpy butt … or I could go for a big butt [and fill it] with silicone to pad over the lumps?”
