APAG Aids in Investigation of Illegal Butt Lift Operation, Creates Form for Victims

LOS ANGELES — Adult performers’ union APAG has released a statement announcing they are cooperating with the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) in their investigation of an illegal butt implant surgery operation that may have affected adult entertainers.

The statement by APAG follows:

Approximately two months ago, two women — 51-year-old Libby Adame and her 23-year-old daughter Alicia Gomez — were arrested and charged in connection with the death of Karissa Rajpa.

The two women are being charged as a result of an unlicensed Brazilian butt implant surgery.

APAG has learned that a number of performers may have had similar surgeries or injections with these two individuals. APAG is cooperating with the LAPD to obtain information from performers regarding any experiences they have had with similar surgeries or injections involving these individuals.

APAG understands that other state and federal agencies, including the Food and Drug Administration, are involved. APAG is hopeful that the results of this cooperation will both prevent similar unlicensed surgeries or injections from occurring in the future, [and] also help determine what chemicals were being used so that performers who had similar surgeries will have a better understanding [of] what may have been put in their bodies.  

If you are interested in providing information to the LAPD, we have created a form that will be submitted to the LAPD so that an investigator with the department can contact you.

Rajpa, according to an LAPD statement to KTLA in September, was undergoing her third butt lift in October 2019 (other sources say September 2020), “when she died from acute respiratory failure from dangerous silicone injections” applied inside a private Encino home.

Adame and Gomez were arrested on August 5, 2021.

The South African Rajpa, described by mainstream media as “an aspiring influencer,” was briefly attached to an adult entertainment agency but is unclear whether she ever perform in professional scenes.

“This cosmetic procedure involved injecting an uncontained, liquid silicone substance directly into the buttocks to make the buttocks look fuller,” the LAPD news release stated in September. “The consequence of injecting uncontained silicone into the body is that it can enter the blood stream and create embolisms which can result in serious illness or death.”

LAPD alleges the two women ran “a completely cash-based operation, adding that [investigators] found evidence that these procedures were conducted in Las Vegas, too, and possibly out of the country, for potentially over a decade.”
