Katy Perry on the Juice?

Filed under: Celebrity

Katy Perry is famous for her curvy figure and she recently admitted to having a cocktail of vitamins, steroids and antibiotics injected into her bum to give it a lift.

She had the treatment when she was in India and experts say it's much more common in developing countries where few patients can afford more advanced - and expensive - surgical treatments.

The injections contain steroids, antibiotics and vitamin B, which cause inflammation and, as a result, lift the bottom.

The treatment is not available in the UK and Ravi Grover, Consultant Plastic Surgeon and President Elect of the the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons, told the Daily Mail that it's best avoided.

He says: 'This cocktail, rather than lifting a saggy bottom, may trigger an inflammatory abscess, or the steroids will cause thinning of the skin."

Dr Aamer Kahn, a GP and cosmetic doctor who runs the Harley Street Skin Clinic, added:

"I would not touch this treatment.

"If antibiotics are injected into the body without good reason the bacteria in the gut can develop resistance to that antibiotic.

"This is how superbugs are formed. Conventional fat transfer by an experienced and qualified practitioner is a far superior and safer treatment."
