You would think that anyone would run from offers of any medical procedure done in a hotel. But in a search for perfection at a bargain, Claudia Adusei elected to undergo a butt-enhancement procedure in the most unseemly of places -- a Hampton Inn. That vain search is thought to have cost her her life.
The 20-year-old student traveled from England to the hotel in Philadelphia to get some more junk in her trunk. But instead, after receiving the injections, she started having problems breathing and chest pains. By the time medics got her to the hospital, she was dead. While her case is still under investigation, authorities say it's likely her death was caused by the procedure.
Tragic, awful, and so preventable. But while it's easy to sit back and say how could she? and she should have been smarter than that, it's also not that difficult to see how a young woman could get caught up in the excitement of it all and go for the thrill of the bargain. A large derriere certainly has done Kim Kardashian well, so why not? It's just a little injection, not like real surgery or anything.
Women host Botox parties in their homes; you can get your teeth whitened in a mall; and many spas perform treatments and procedures you once could only get in a dermatologist's office. The procedures are becoming so common and so prevalent that their risks are often overshadowed by the results we want to see. Many seem to forget that more than our beauty is at stake.
Unfortunately, sometimes you get what you pay for. And when it comes to your health, it's not time to bargain. Hopefully, Adusei's death won't be in vain, and rather serve as a cautionary tale to all women to do the research, to know what's being done, and ultimately to really evaluate if ANY risk is worth the price of physical beauty.
Can you imagine ever getting a cosmetic procedure done in a hotel room?
