Courtney Barnes, known as Ms Maimi, boosted her curves with illegal biopolymer butt injections. But now, she’s had over nine surgeries to reduce her 59-inch butt to 48 inches. She says she is not that person anymore.
37-year-old Ms Miami described her fake butt as a money maker. She told Truly, “My old butt was awesome. It was the life of the party. My old buttocks got a lot of attention. It helped make me who I was. But I also had something about my old butt that I wanted to change.”
But after years of struggling with side effects and shopping (most clothing stores didn’t have clothes that stretched enough to cover her bum), Ms Miami “ wanted to have surgeries to reduce its size” because she had illegal butt injections. She said, “Back in the day, getting black market butt injections was more of an underground thing. There was no mention of Brazillian butt lift or fat transfer. Doctors were not doing that. I can’t say it was a mistake. That was just my slurry. I have no regrets.”
“Having the surgery wasn’t an easy decision. I have been thinking about it for a long time before social media was popular back in 2007/2008. I was looking for a doctor to remove it. The surgeries I had were to remove my butt injections. They are called Bipolymer removal. It is a surgery to remove biopolymer or black market butt injections. And I had another surgery to reposition my scar. I can’t really work out too much yet. I am ready to move forward and have my reconstruction in a few months.”
According to Courtney, she had no regrets or whatsoever for getting the Brobdingnagian booty fillers. She said it made a lot of people happy, and so she was happy.
“A lot of people had a lot of fun with my old booty. I am not that person anymore when I got it. I made a lot of people feel good with my old butty. It made people’s day just by looking at my old booty.”
