Salon owner gives breast injections to client, causes severe injuries

Carmel Foster

A young woman was taken to hospital in a critical condition after allegedly being given an illegal breast augmentation in a dingy beauty salon.

Sheena Bradford was rushed to the emergency room after complaining of severe chest pain shortly after she underwent the procedure.

It is thought the 26-year-old had a chemical substance injected into her to try and make her breasts look larger.

The operation was allegedly carried out by salon owner Carmel Foster, 38, who police claim was not licensed to do it.

Cops in Tyler, Texas, have now issued two warrants for her arrest and have revealed that she carried out a similar operation on Miss Bradford’s cousin Kenya Sheppard, 27, two weeks ago.

Miss Bradford is no longer being treated at the Good Shepherd Hospital in Longview but it is not clear if she is still recovering or has suffered long term damage.

Foster’s clinic is the Queen Divas Salon in Tyler which is in a run-down looking converted home on a suburban street.

Keidra Mitchell told CBS 19 that she used to work there and that Foster could have been doing the injections for as long as two years.

She said: ‘She said she wanted to do the booty and the breast shots because that’s what’s hot.

‘I never had the concern to ask who is going to do them. I thought she was going to have someone do them.’

When MailOnline called the telephone number listed for Foster’s salon it had been disconnected.

Her bond has been set at $200,000 but she has so far not been arrested.

The alleged incident is the latest example of women undergoing cosmetic surgery procedures in suspect circumstances which have gone terribly wrong.

Last year British student Claudia Aderotimi died after flying to Philadelphia for a ‘butt boos’ operation which she hoped would make her a hip hop star.

The 21-year-old paid $2,000 but had a heart attack after complaining of chest pains within hours of the bodged silicone jab in a cheap hotel room.

MailOnline has also reported on alleged ‘fake doctor’ Oneal Ron Morris in Miami, Flordia, who left his victims horrifically disfigured after injecting their faces with a toxic mixture of cement and tire sealant.

Dr. Jeffrey Kenkel, President of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, told CBS 19.

‘I’m a little horrified to be honest with you.

‘It is very concerning that anyone would be injecting any products hat we have currently available in this country or outside this country in an area like the breast.

‘If you inadvertently inject some of these products into a blood vessel that blood vessel could go to the heart and lungs and that can severely hurt somebody or kill them’.

He added that he hoped this incident would serve as a wake-up call to women.

He said: ‘Patients need to be inquisitive. They need to ask about the training of the practitioners. What is this product approved for by the FDA?

‘And, if your ‘re not using it for its approved use what is your experience in using it as an off-label product?’
