A woman from Maryland, 34-year-old Kelly Mayhew, died shortly after getting silicon injections for a butt lift in Queens, NY and police say the person who was performing the procedure was unlicensed and ran away from the scene.
Authorities say Mayhew and her mother drove to the Far Rockaway house to get silicone injections for a butt lift. During the procedure, which was being performed in the basement, Mayhew began to have difficulty breathing.

Her mother started performing CPR and asked the woman to call 911, but instead fled the scene, driving off in a gray SUV. Detectives are looking to talk to her.

By the time Police responded they found her unresponsive. She was rushed to St. John’s Hospital, where she was pronounced dead. EMS attempted to revive Mayhew, but they were unsuccessful. Mayhew’s mother told police it was at least her daughter’s fifth cosmetic surgery.

The suspect is suspected to have administered illegal silicone injections in a makeshift medical room in the rented basement.

Police and the medical examiner’s office are investigating what lead to the death. Mayhew was a freelancer at BET Networks and worked at their DC office. A spokesman released the following statement:

“We are saddened by the death of our colleague and friend, Kelly Mayhew. Our hearts go out to her family, and we extend our deepest sympathies for their loss.”

Mayhew is just one of many victims who have died from black market buttocks injections.
