(Newser) – All you wanted was a more ample rear—heck, Heidi Montag did it and she’s fine, right?—but you might walk out with abscesses, kidney damage, or a pulmonary embolism. Why are butt augmentations so dangerous? Well, they’re not—necessarily—worse than other plastic surgery procedures; they’re simply getting trendy fast, leading to riskier practices like unlicensed practitioners and unapproved silicone, Salon reports.

One doctor gives us this “should be obvious” quote: “You really should know what you're doing when you're moving fat around. You can't just squirt in a glob,” or complications will ensue. A butt job done right should take 2-4 hours, but most spas are going to rush through it. Making the situation even more dangerous, if the procedure is done with industrial silicone, it’s extremely unstable—especially in the derriere.

Oprah is a fake. Too many people listen too whaat she says and not what she does. Watch out or you will be caught in her trap. Ask Oprah if she believes in God. She believes that she is her own God. Jay Z, Oprah. Obama. Will Smith, Rhiana and others are here to deceive you. Don't believe the hype. Actions speak louder than words.

Yup, it's official - we've moved from boobs to butt stories.
