An Argentine woman has died after attempting to give herself breast implants by injecting herself with vaseline.
Amateur runner Sonia Perez Llanzon, 39, reportedly suffered a fatal blood clot in her lung several weeks after carrying out the dangerous DIY procedure.
Local media reports that she started enduring breathing problems and was rushed to Lucio Molas Hospital in Santa Rosa.
Despite having injuries on her breasts, she initially denied any knowledge of what had happened.
But she later confessed to doctors that she’d injected the solution in a bid to make her chest bigger, said head of surgery Julio Pla.
“I’ve never seen a case like this. The human body has antibodies to remove bacteria and viruses, but it hasn’t got any mechanisms against this type of product,” Pla told La Capital.
“Other people using Vaseline like this are putting themselves in danger,” he added.
Ladies, let this be ANOTHER lesson: if you can’t afford proper procedures then don’t do it.
