Miami, Florida. Just the city’s name brings images of bikinis, sunshine, beaches and wild parties to mind. Nowadays, it also makes people think of plastic surgery.

The number of people getting work done by surgeons has increased over the years despite its high cost. One Miami woman decided to sacrifice quality for cost when she went to a “doctor” she’d been referred to by word of mouth. Her goal was to get a “curvier body” by getting butt implants so she could get a job at a nightclub.

The woman, Oneal Ron Morris, she found for the surgery only posed as a doctor. Morris was “born a man” but “identifies as a woman,” and has allegedly performed the surgery not only on herself but on other unsuspecting customers as well. The “toxic concoction” Morris injected in several areas around the woman’s butt consisted of “cement, mineral oil and flat-tire sealant.”

Morris is charged with “practicing medicine without a license with serious bodily injury.” The police only discovered the scheme once the injuries of the Miami woman previously mentioned became too severe for her to bear the embarrassment of telling doctors what Morris has done during previous visits. No other victims have come forward, most likely due to the same embarrassment she faced.

The description of Morris provided in the Gainesville Sun article just adds to the bizarre nature of the whole incident. Hard to believe anyone would entrust his or her health in any way with someone who tells patients: “‘Oh don’t worry, you’ll be fine. We just keep injecting you with the stuff and it all works itself out,’” when “the pain became too intense.” That statement definitely inspires confidence…not.
