6 women treated after botched buttock surgery

Six women from Essex County were hospitalized after investigators say they received injections of caulking silicone in their buttocks.

Officials say the women apparently visited unlicensed providers to receive the buttock-enhancement procedure. The women were given a diluted version of non medical-grade silicone.

The women later underwent surgery and were given antibiotics at hospitals after the procedures went wrong.

Officials did not release the name of the women or the unlicensed providers. No arrests have been made in the case.
