Banned Venezuela buttock silicone injections 'can be lethal'
Looking good can be bad for your health - at least when you go to extreme lengths to achieve it.

An estimated 30% of women between 18 and 50 have had the injections, which were banned in 2012.
Irene Caselli reports from the Venezuelan capital, Caracas.
