Woman Injected Her BO0ty To Get Bigger But It May Cost Her Life After Surgery Went Wrong [Video]
May. 19, 2020
A MIAMI-based model and influencer has resolved to slim down her 59 inch booty so that people will take her seriously as an author.
Courtney Barnes, known professionally as Ms Miami, underwent three rounds of illegal butt shots at black market “pumping parties”, beginning when she was 22 years old.
But the 35-year-old is now planning to get the filler removed and has written a book to warn other women about the dangers they can cause.
She said: “At one point I wanted a bigger butt at any cost, but now I realize it could cost me my life and that’s why I wanted to bring the awareness to other women.”
Like many young women Courtney suffered from body dysmorphia disorder (BDD) and says the butt shots were an attempt to improve her self-image.

Courtney’s supersized butt has undoubtedly garnered her a lot attention, with 815,000 people following her on Instagram.
But the side effects of the injections are all too visible - the skin on her posterior has become discoloured in places and the shape is sagging drastically.
Surgeon Dr Gonzalo Mosquera said: “She’s definitely had illegal injection of polymer which is a very sad but common thing that occurs in the area.
“We see a lot of complications with that, some patients get a lot of symptoms, a lot of pain, they can’t sleep, they can’t lean on it, they can’t rest. It’s an awful, illegal treatment.
“Fortunately Courtney doesn’t have a lot of symptoms besides the size and the lumps but at any point in life people can develop symptoms.”
Treatment to remove the fillers can be expensive, and Courtney is also concerned about the health risks involved with the procedure.
She said: “The cost of fixing my butt is more than what I paid to get this butt, it’d be well over $20,000.
Courtney recently published her book “I Am Not My Body – But I Wanted A Bigger Butt”.
She is also taking etiquette classes and has engaged a life coach to help her achieve her dreams of being taken seriously as an author.
Courtney added: “I have made a lot of mistakes but I am looking to put all this behind me – included this behind.”
