Silicone injections: getting pumped

(clik aquí para la traducción española)

How much is too much? Below is Kelly Harper, a well-known advocate and practitioner of pumping silicone into trans women. When you get pumped, you are at the mercy of someone whose idea of what looks good might not match what most people think.

Some trans people have serious body images issues (think Michael Jackson) that make them believe "just a little more will make me look just a little better." Then they end up looking like this. Or worse.

Friends say Kelly died from complications of unlicensed medical procedures peformed by Dr. Sony/Dr. Sonny/Dr. Ramirez in Guadalajara, Mexico in 2008.
