I don’t usually speak openly about silicone injections because honestly I never thought it was anyone’s business what I may have or not have had done to my body to physically transform myself to who I am today. But, after hearing of yet another young transgender woman who died recently from loose silicone injections I thought it best to speak about it openly to let others in the transgender community know just how dangerous this can be.
As a young transgender woman, in the early 1990’s I decided to get loose silicone injections in my breasts and hips and buttocks area. I had no idea what I was getting myself into at the time, opting to try and achieve the look I was going for, without having to spend the money it would normally take to get there through the proper medical paths.
