Two women, who got cosmetic injections to give them a “J.Lo” style bottom, are now in critical condition at a Tampa, Fla. hospital, MyFOXTampaBay.com reported.
Andrea Lee, 30, suffered total kidney failure after receiving the injections at a private home in the community of Town ‘N Country. Her friend Zakiya Teagle, 33, is also in a critical condition.
The Hillsborough County sheriff’s office is now looking for the woman who they say administered the shots illegally.
Sharhonda Lindsay of Tampa is wanted for practicing medicine without a license. A warrant for her arrest was issued Monday, according to the Web site.
"It almost is bootleg cosmetology here," said sheriff's office spokesman JD Callaway. "These two victims knew of this woman, at least one of them did. They knew that she was known to have given injections to other women to enhance the buttocks area.”
Investigators said the women were told the injection was Hydrogel, which is a silicone-based substance and saline solution.
They said one woman received 40 shots within a 90-minute period. The other received 20 in the same amount of time.
"We've been told that she's done other women," said Callaway. "But we're not aware of these other women experiencing these medical problems like these two women did."
