Mayra Lissette Contreras, 22, got injections of silicone to the buttocks and died afterwards. The autopsy results have not been published yet, but she probably died from respiratory problems after the surgical intervention.
Michael Kane, a cosmetics surgeon, states that cases like those of Contreras happen a lot. "I don´t know any licensed professional who would inject large amounts of silicone into the body", he also said.
Contreras sisters Alejandra and Guadalupe Viveros, who are said to have performed the operation, had been arrested. They were held on a $200,000 bail, then released. They are supposedly somewhere in Mexico by now.
