Police have arrested the owner of Tyler's Queen Diva salon for giving unlicensed breast injections to customers, but "unlicensed" doesn't begin to cover it.
The arrest affidavit for Carmel Foster describes a procedure that would send any sane woman running, even in East Texas.
The complainant said a cousin had referred her to Foster, who she called "CC."
She paid $800, was taken into a back room and
sat on a black couch and there were clothes everywhere. She stated that the suspect asked her to take her shirt off and then filled a plastic jug with a clear gel substance.
She stated that she poured the gel into a paper bowl and filled up a syringe. [She] stated that the suspect put a needle in two places on each breast and then attached the syringe to the needle and put approximately 12 syringes full of gel into each breast....She stated that her breasts immediately swelled and the gel began pouring out of the needle holes. She stated that the suspect put super glue on the hole and placed a cotton swab on the super glue.

The complainant said she was in severe pain almost immediately and became short of breath. She eventually was hospitalized and had to be put on a ventilator.
