I was desperate for the perfect bum but my implants were a terrible mistake – I thought I was going to die

A mother feared she would die after a botched operation because of her perfect butt.

Ximena Hurtado Lopez was hoping for a beautifully sculpted butt but was instead left with several large bumps, one of which burst.

The 49-year-old has been in constant pain for a year and is still unable to sleep on her back or sit for long periods of time.

Ximena, from Croydon, south London, said: “This treatment was a terrible mistake which has left me unable to lead a normal life.”

“If I could go back I would never have done it as it gave me constant buttock and back pain.

“I was told to trust the practitioner and that it would be really good for me, but it was a nightmare.”

“If they had told me about the possible side effects, I would not have continued.

“In the weeks following the treatment, I thought I was going to die because the pain was so bad.”

The mother-of-one visited the beauty clinic in May last year to undergo varicose vein reduction treatment.

There, the doctor persuaded her to have a buttock augmentation as well.

On the day of the surgery, Ximena claimed the worker didn’t have the right needles or gun with her, but she still felt compelled to continue.

She said: “I was concerned from the start that something was wrong as they didn’t seem to know what they were doing, but they assured me everything would be fine.”

“I was supposed to be given an anesthetic but I was in pain from the moment they started injecting my buttocks.

“The pain was unbearable. On a scale of one to ten, it was a 10.”

Within hours of the procedure, multiple bumps formed on her buttocks.

When she called the clinic, she was reportedly told it was a normal reaction.

But a few weeks later, one of the lumps on her right cheek reportedly opened up, creating an abscess wound that was leaking pus.

Ximena says she called the clinic again and was advised not to go to the hospital but to return to get cleaned.

Three months later the wound reopened and she went to Guy’s Hospital where she was given antibiotics and told her treatment had not been done correctly.

She is now taking legal action against the clinic and is urging anyone considering the implantation to think twice.

Ximena said, “I’m very concerned as the doctors don’t really know what’s wrong with me.”

“I’m scared because I don’t know what’s inside me and if it can be treated.

“If anyone is thinking about going to one of these clinics, I would say think twice, but if you want to go ahead, make sure you do your research first.”

Blanca Diego Casas, a personal injury attorney Osborne’s law who represents Ximena said: “My client has suffered terribly through no fault of her own, yet in this case the defendant refuses to get in touch with us despite several attempts.”

“My client is understandably distressed to be experiencing ongoing pain and health issues as a result of failed treatment.

“We hope that we can resolve this matter as soon as possible so that she can get on with her life.”
