My quest for the perfect bottom left me with NO LIMBS': Mother's botched black market injections led to quadruple amputation
of-two and hair stylist from LA
Had silicone injections in buttocks, but it was actually bathroom sealant
For five years had constant pain 'like toothache, labour and migraine'
Was given 24 hours to live by doctors and put into induced coma
Awoke after two months to find she had no hands, feet or buttocks
Had had 27 operations to rectify damage and save her life
Appeared on ITV's This Morning to warn women against injections
A mother-of-two whose quest for the perfect bottom led to a quadruple limb and buttock amputation has warned other women against black market silicone injections.
Hair stylist Apryl Michelle Brown, from LA, spent five years in excruciating pain when an unlicensed practitioner injected her buttocks with bathroom sealant, telling her it was silicone, in order to enhance them.
Doctors had no idea how to treat the botched implants and told her she might have to live with the agony, but when they finally operated the injections became so badly infected she was induced into a coma.
It was only when she awoke two months later that Apryl, now 46, discovered thelengths medical staff had gone to to keep her alive.
