Mississippi Booty Doc Charged In Fatal Butt Injection Death

A Mississippi man who dresses and lives as a woman has been charged with depraved-heart murder after performing an illegal buttocks implant that killed a Georgia woman, authorities said Tuesday.

Morris Garner, (pictured) who also goes by the name Tracey Lynn Garner, is charged with doing the procedure in March at his house in Jackson, Miss. Mississippi Attorney General Jim Hood said during a news conference Tuesday that Garner had no training or license to perform such a procedure.

“You don’t even have words to speak about what a horrible thing it is when somebody who is trying to improve their appearance and self-confidence only ends up, not only potentially unhappy, but dead,” said Dr. Malcolm Roth, president of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons in Arlington Heights, Ill. “We’re hearing more and more about deaths when non-physicians are doing injections, and patients just aren’t informed.”

Roth said he has treated patients who have come to him to correct plastic surgeries gone wrong, and he has seen more and more of them over the years. Since he became president of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons a year ago, Roth said, he has talked to plastic surgeons from around the world, and they’re seeing the same trend.

The number of illegal surgeries is hard to track because they aren’t reported.

“It’s hard to know because there’s no real reporting mechanism,” Roth said, adding that state laws require physicians to report patient deaths. “But if it’s not a physician, who’s reporting?”

Many times, the patient is looking for a bargain, especially given the economic turmoil of the past three to five years, Roth said. But often the added cost of corrective surgeries exceeds that of the underground surgery. Sometimes, the physical damage is irreversible.
