In the world of stripping and video vixens having an ass is key to making money, especially in the urban world. In a recent interview, Cardi explained that she got them done in a basement in Queens for $800 "It was the craziest pain ever. I felt like I was gonna pass out. I felt a little dizzy. And it leaks for, like, five days," Dr. Wright A. Jones, a double board certified plastic surgeon, tells The Hollywood Reporter that "Cardi's surgery sounds like it was done on the black market through a procedure that filled her butt with silicone, an illegal filler with potential negative health effects. Silicone could enter the bloodstream and travel throughout the body, causing infection, loss of limbs, stroke, kidney failure, respiratory failure, heart failure or even death"
For most, this is explained. Yet hundreds of girls a year still take the chance because they are unable to pay a doctors fee ranging from $3000-$10,000 for a Brazilian butt lift.
