Mother, daughter accused of 'outlaw' buttocks augmentations

The two were taken into custody last month in the city of Riverside.

LOS ANGELES — Authorities say a mother and daughter have been arrested in Southern California on suspicion of performing “outlaw” buttocks augmentation procedures on women, including one who died. 

Los Angeles police say the women are accused of performing the unsafe, unapproved cosmetic procedures at non-medical facilities. Officials say their clients were recruited through Instagram. The two were taken into custody last month in the city of Riverside.
