The wonderful people of
Anthony Donnell Solomon, of Northwest Miami-Dade, has been accused of practicing medicine illegally. Women gather at private homes or hotel rooms for “pumping parties” and invite Mr. Solomon as the guest of honor. He would then give them shots of silicone to increase the size of their buttocks.
The parties came to an end (pardon the pun) when state and county investigators set up a fake “pumping party” and Solomon agreed to increase to shoot some silicone into an undercover detective. The Florida Department of Health verified that Solomon did not have the legal clearance necessary to perform this curious task. The charge of unlicensed practice of a healthcare profession is a third-degree felony. Solomon now faces up to five years in prison and/or a $5000 fine.
I wonder if Mr. Solomon knew the potential penalty that awaited him if he was caught leading these festive cosmetic gatherings. After all, there actually are quite a few recent trials involving this exact crime. The participants at these functions need to know that the health risks are quite real.
