Silicone implants that enlarge the buttocks sound risque, but they're also illicit and potentially deadly.
A woman accused of offering just that service was recently arrested in a downtown D.C. hotel, according to court records.
Federal authorities say women wanted 45-year-old Kimberly Smedley to give them injections of liquid silicone to "increase the size and shape" of their buttocks.
Smedley usually performed the injections in hotel rooms and was arrested on Oct. 11 at the JW Marriott near 14th Street NW and Pennsylvania Avenue, according to an application for a search warrant to search items she had with her when she was taken into custody.
The search warrant application, which was filed in federal court in Baltimore and was made public this week, says an arrest warrant was issued for Smedley in September.
That warrant remains under seal. It could not be determined Wednesday whether Smedley has an attorney.
Robert Ekey, a special agent with the Food and Drug Administration, wrote in the court documents that the agency had been investigating Smedley since April for distributing unapproved and misbranded devices.
An exotic dancer at a Baltimore club told authorities that she met Smedley in September 2010 and asked for silicone injections, according to court documents. The woman then paid Smedley $4,000 for nine injections in each buttock, which were given between October 2010 and March 2011.
The FDA "has not approved or cleared any silicone device for this intended use," Ekey wrote.
At her last treatment, the woman asked for injections in her hips. She was hospitalized two days later from shortness of breath and a computed tomography scan found silicone inside her lungs, according to court records.
It's not clear how many injections Smedley has performed.
Her operation first surfaced in March 2008, when the New York Post reported about Smedley offering the injections from Manhattan hotels. Hotel records show Smedley logged 106 stays at Marriott hotels between January 2010 and May 2011, court documents say.
When Smedley was arrested at the D.C. Marriott, she "was not willing to answer questions beyond confirming her residence," according to court records.
The documents say she received a text message that night from someone named "MilliDC" asking if Smedley would be in town the next day because "wanna make an apt 4 my aunt an I want my hips done."
Arrest and charge her ass
At least it wasn’t window cleaner in an elevator...
(let’s see who gets THAT reference)
Special Agent of the FDA? Are they armed?
Need to get to the “bottom” if this!
I thought all you needed to change the shape of your a$$ was to eat at Mickey D’s early and often.
She injected her in the hips and hit her lungs? Wow. Maybe the sunglasses, guide dog and white cane should have tipped her off.
I guess instead of axing you somethin’,
she’d be assin’ you somethin’.
Having Smedley as a last name is grounds enough to have her arrested.
A shady Atlanta businesswoman armed with a gallon jug of silicone and syringes is offering to inject women seeking “J.Lo butts” in a Manhattan hotel room - an illegal and potentially lethal cosmetic treatment.
“I need to see your butt,” Kimberly Smedley told a Post reporter posing as a customer last week in a suite at the Eastgate Tower Hotel on East 39th Street.
Smedley, a heavyset woman wearing camouflage pants and fake Ugg boots, then demanded $1,600 in cash to give nine injections to each cheek.
Sitting on a coffee table was a Poland Spring jug, which she claimed contained “medical-grade silicone,” along with a syringe and cotton balls.
“It’s illegal,” she said. “I’m not a doctor, and I’m not a nurse.”
Smedley, 41, has two shoplifting convictions in Georgia, where she drives an Infiniti and lives in a handsome brick estate in a neighborhood of half-million-dollar homes. The Post learned about Smedley from a Harlem beautician in her late 20s who said that Smedley visits New York every few weeks and that she has injected several friends.
Is that YOU, Merv?
Too much work, apparently.
Kim Kardashian was arrested?
“It kills your brain last”
“I don’t mind”
I don't know. I've always just loved to kill. I really enjoyed it. But then I got famous, and - it's just too hard for me. And so many witnesses. I mean, *everybody* recognized me. I couldn't even lurk anymore. I'd hear, "Who's that lurking over there? Isn't that Merv Griffin?" So I came to Europe to kill. And it's really worked out very well for me.

Jul 6, 2008 After hearing she was the best, I went to see Ms G through Sasha Hay. Sasha Hay said the money I gave her was going into Ms G’s Account Now Account. Now I have lumps and discoloration in my butt and it looks really bad. I’m not going back to Ms G again! Can someone please tell me how I can contact Ms. Lillian or Nurse C to see if they know how to help me?
My sister had the opportunity to meet Crmn in Atlanta. We reside in beautiful Duluth, GA. My sister stumbled upon this forum in search of getting her butt enlarged. I was blessed with a nice butt. My sister wasn’t because she took after our father’s side of the family, lol. When my sister told me that she was able to land an appointment with Crmn, she was very happy. After all, Crmn sounded so nice and professional over the phone. She told my sister there was a 300 deposit fee to secure her reservation and for the aftercare package she provides. My sister only gave her 200 because that’s all she had. First she cancelled my sister’s appointment and never would answer her emails to reschedule. Finally after giving my sister the run around she answers back apologizing for the ordeal. My sister gets another appointment date. After getting the injections, her butt looked gorgeous. Very round and natural looking. That lasted only 2 weeks at the most. When my sister informed her that her butt was decreasing in size she told her that was just the swelling. That liar, my sister’s butt look like she never had anything done. Her results have completely disappeared and now she’s left with discolorations. The lump disappeared but her skin is bruised. Crmn should feel bad about what she has done. Any woman who supports her knowing the truth about her should be locked up and the keys thrown away. Now she doesn’t return my sister’s calls or emails. We will be hiring a P.I to locate her. She will return the money or this matter will turn very ugly. I hear a lot of things about a Ms Lillian and Ms G. Would anybody reccomend that my sister seeks out their help to repair the damage? Or should she just give up all hope?
We never seen anyone from Duluth,Ga and we don’t do anyone from there if anyone seen you it was G not us. Quit the lies already ! Stop trying to turn the lies toward us we all know who the real scammers are Sasha Hay who is a known con artist and scammer. All of G’s girls went to Ms . Lillian and others because of this mess so stop it because you are not helping G. I think we all know who Sasha Hay worked for. We keep records of everyone that we see and we always follow up with everyone we see. This is a lie!
I wanna kiss her but, she won’t let me.
I wanna whisper sweet nothings in her ear.
An insult to the FLOTUS butt.
I was just thinking. Of all the girls I have dated including my wife, I have yet to know one who thought their butt was too small.
They all thought it was too big and often did a lot of exercise trying to make it smaller.
Actually they were all just about the right size.
"Did your water break?"
I only use Pane in the Glass window cleaner. Finest kind.
Rob McKay - Taco Bell heir
McKay grew up in conservative Orange County with Republican parents, but he moved to the Bay Area, attended graduate school at UC Berkeley and eventually helped finance San Francisco's successful living wage campaign for low-income workers.
McKay spent most of his youth in Southern California, attending wealthy Foothill High School and Occidental College, where he studied political science. A job in Chicago training to become a banking analyst got him interested in low-income housing issues and poverty.
McKay, who turns 38 next month, begins his days in San Francisco with a latte and newspapers at Cafe Roma, then heads back home for phone calls to the East Coast. The foundation has an office in the Financial District.
McKay is finalizing his divorce from Pam Spritzer, a New York writer who lives with their 3-year-old daughter, Ade. He keeps an apartment in the West Village and visits at least a week every month, he said.
McKay said he first read about the extent of his family's wealth as a teenager reading the business pages of the Los Angeles Times. His father, who took Taco Bell from one franchise to a nationwide chain, sold his 10 percent share of the business to PepsiCo Inc. in 1978, netting an estimated $13 million. He remained as an executive until 1981.
The family bank account has grown considerably thanks to other investments, including the National Bank of Southern California and US Robotics.
**** injections of liquid silicone to “increase the size and shape” of their buttocks.***
Back in the 1960s several strippers in the LA area had silicone injected into them to enlarge their breast size.
The name Carol Dotta comes to mind.
I remember when I first heard of it I thought all siclcone was SAND! and thought, “Why in the world would anyone inject sand into their breasts”!
The man with two brains :D
I’m guessing you didn’t date black women.
That was my favorite flick by that actor! Silly but hilarious.
I wanna hold her behind closed doors,
Reminds me of woman asked husband for money for breast implants and he said ‘Try rubbing toilet paper on them’.
When she questioned him he said
“You have been wiping your ‘butt’ for years and the results speak for itself”.
Funeral is tomorrow.
There are plenty of blood vessels in the legs. The silicon could have been injected into one of them, for example. The blood then will carry it everywhere, and it will plug the smallest blood vessels it can find - which are plentiful in lungs:
An adult alveolus has an average diameter of 200 micrometres, with an increase in diameter during inhalation. (link)
I cant believe the first wookies name hasn’t yet come up.
I can’t believe the author doesn’t know the difference between an implant and an injection.
I recall reading in Nature I think it was that in societies where food is plentiful, thin = beautiful. Where it is scarce, fat = beautiful.
Silicon implants were, I believe, encased in something. To just shoot silicon into your body freely is unbelievably dangerous as it can travel anywhere and cause problems including, I would think, death.
More info on injections here. Ir wasn’t Dotta it was Doda.
