A doctor prepares patient Aguilar for surgery, in Caracas
A doctor prepares patient Evelin De Aguilar, 30, for surgery to remove liquid silicone she had paid to have injected into her buttocks previously for aesthetic reasons, in Caracas, October 3, 2013. Venezuelan plastic surgeon Daniel Slobodianik performs various procedures, including operations on patients who have previously had illegal or amateur injections of liquid silicone into their buttocks in order to enhance them. The reverse operation that Slobodianik carries out costs approximately $8,200 and takes between two and three hours depending on how much fluid the patient has in the area. Plastic surgery is common in Venezuela, where many women from all walks of life undergo procedures to nip, tuck or boost different parts of their bodies. Picture taken October 3, 2013.
