Mauldin, S.C. — A South Carolina woman was arrested and jailed in connection with a buttocks implant procedure allegedly performed without a license at her boutique here, msnbc.com reports.
The New Jersey woman on whom the procedure was performed nearly died afterward, but has since recovered, according to the report. She had come to 35-year-old Michelle Roca’s boutique specifically to get buttocks implants. Investigators allege that Ms. Roca flies in doctors from outside the country to perform procedures at her boutique. Ms. Roca’s family denies the allegations.
Msnbc.com quotes local police as saying that Ms. Roca did not perform the procedures, but was a facilitator. She allegedly contacted a doctor, arranged the procedures and ensured that the doctor arrived in the country and then left the country afterward.
