According to NY Daily News:
A Bronx woman who did $1,500 butt lifts with illegal injections of silicone without a medical license was sentenced Monday to one year in prison.
Whalesca Castillo, 37, who pleaded guilty last September to operating an underground cosmetic clinic out of her home from May 2009 until her arrest in January 2011, begged for leniency before Manhattan Federal Court Judge Leonard Sand.
Her bail was revoked in January after prosecutors presented evidence that she continued to do the rump injections with silicone after her arrest in January 2011.
They said Castillo moved her operation to a different location and received silicone gel from the Dominican Republic at another address.
The feds found out about Castillo in August 2010 when an unhappy customer reported her to authorities.
The woman paid Castillo for a silicone injection to her backside and experienced pain and shortness of breath following the procedure. Hours later the woman also fainted, said prosecutors.
After her boyfriend revived her, the woman called Castillo and asked if she should go to the hospital.
Prosecutors said Castillo told the woman the hospital would not help her because “the procedure was illegal.”
They also said another woman who had the procedure sent a text to Castillo that said, “I’m leaking some blood and liquid, is normal?”
Castillo texted the woman back, saying “Buy some crazy glue and put it on.”
