23-Year-Old Nigerian Woman Dies While Getting Cheap Butt Implants in Thailand

Posted in: , ,

Nigerian-British Joy Williams, 23, died on October 23 after travelling to Bangkok to have butt implant surgery that cost only £2,000. According to doctors consulted by Mailonline, good buttock surgery costs between 7000 and 8000 pounds averagely. Joy also stayed in a £11-a-night Vabua Asotel hotel, used by the clinic as accommodation for its patients to further save money.

Now, her family have revealed that she didn't tell them that she was travelling or what she went there for.

The older brother Anietie, 28, said he had been looking forward to her visiting him in Nigeria this Christmas. He told Dailymail;

"She was a very nice and caring person. She brought joy to people's lives. She was a beautiful girl, loved by everybody.

"She last came to Nigeria seven years ago - we were looking forward to see her in December. We will miss her so much."

"We don't really know what went wrong, we only know what is in reports in the media.

Miss Williams, who was born in Lagos, settled in Thamesmead with her mother Christie in 2007 and had been to Thailand twice before choosing to visit for surgery.

She initially visited the SP clinic, which she found on the internet, on October 14 to have the operation which she hoped would give her a bigger, fuller bottom.

A few days later her wounds became infected and she returned to have corrective surgery to remove the silicon implants.

But she was found dead on the operating table with a three inch-long stitched incision on her tail bone after medical staff found they were unable to resuscitate her.


The doctor who carried out the procedure, Sompob Sansiri, 51, was later arrested and accused of negligence after it was found that he had been carrying out night-time surgery without a licence.

He has now been charged with recklessness causing death and could face 10 years in jail if found guilty.

The clinic has been closed for 60 days while investigations are carried out.

Joy Williams was the second Nigerian girl to die in search of a medical buttock enhancement. Three years ago, another British Nigerian girl, Claudia Aderotimi, 20 years old, flew to Philadelphia to have her buttock enhanced. The rising hip-hop star and dancer died after the illegal cosmetic procedure
Claudia, of Hackney, East London, suffered chest pains after the injections and died in hospital.
