The booty business seems to be a lucrative profession!
At least that seems to have been the case for Kimberly Smedley (pictured), a Georgia woman who pleaded guilty in March to administering silicone injections to a large female clientele over eight years. She was arrested by federal authorities in October of 2011 while preparing to inject clients in a Washington, D.C. hotel.
According to The Smoking Gun, Smedley reportedly earned $1.3 million from her illegal enterprise that was run out of hotel rooms across the country. Federal authorities say a forensic accounting analysis of her receipts concludes that she made a considerably larger sum. Smedley charged anywhere from $500 to $1600 per injection.

To keep her business afloat, she order large amounts of silicone. For one order, she paid as much as $5000. Real butt injections run as high as $10,000 bucks. The type Smedley was administering, however, were extremely cheap in comparison–and dangerous. A 20-year-old London woman, Claudia Adusei, died in Philly after receiving a butt injection in a local hotel back in Feb. of 2011. Mayra Lissette Contreras, a 22-year-old California woman, died after a butt injection operation in 2010.
