A man in Florida posed as a doctor and is now facing charges of unlicensed practice of health care that caused serious physical harm after injecting two patients’ buttock’s with silicone in a motel room. The man has been identified as 44 year old, Calvin Edward Butler, and has been allegedly performing these types of illegal injections at the El Patio Motel since back in June of 2012. The first victim told detectives that she received silicone injections from Butler at the Patio Motel four different times from September to October, 2012. The victim said she would disrobe from the waist down and Butler would use a felt tip pen to mark areas on her buttocks where Butler felt she “needed fullness,” according to the report.
With the victim lying down, Butler would pour out a clear liquid from a Pedialyte bottle, telling the woman it was sterile silicone, the report said. After pouring the liquid into a plastic cup, he filled syringes from the cup which he used to inject into the woman’s buttocks, the report said. After the woman’s last injection procedure, she began to feel painful nodules at the injection sites and she contacted Butler. Butler told her to take warm baths and massage the nodules and the symptoms would subside, the report said.
But the woman soon began to suffer from several open and oozing wounds, fevers and swollen lymph nodes, and went to the emergency room at JFK Hospital in Atlantis for treatment, the report said.
The woman was given antibiotics and discharged but was later readmitted with Lymphadentitis, a swelling of the lymph nodes due to bacterial infection. She still hasn’t fully recovered, suffers from chronic pain and a chronic cough, and is now disfigured, the report said.
The incident is just the latest in a series of arrests in South Florida for illegal buttocks injections. Just last month, a Hialeah couple was arrested after police say they performed a botched buttocks-enhancing procedure on a woman.
