Cosmetic filler poisoning

M. García

M. died in hospital just under a fortnight after undergoing a silicone filler injection on 20th September.

A 26-year-old [trans woman] identified as [deadname] García, of Venezuelan nationality, and who was part of the LGTBI community, died [in hospital] in the last few hours, due to the injuries she sustained to her body as a result of a bad cosmetic procedure on 20th September.

Next to her were two other young people had arrived in poor health after having silicone injected to lift their buttocks. This procedure was also what led to the death of the young Venezuelan.

It was assumed that this product could be used to increase glutes, breasts and lips. Another victim is still in a delicate state of health, because this injected substance has destroyed or decomposed muscles at each injection site.

The victim was transsexual and it was a third party who sold them the product of aesthetic beauty that "did wonders", but they never expected to be deceived by people who play with the health of people, without caring at risk the lives of their customers.
