On Saturday, just off Miami’s MacArthur Causeway, Larry Vega was cycling along when saw a naked man eating another naked man’s face. Vega stopped and told him to get off the victim but “the other guy just kept eating the other guy away.” Vega spotted a Miami Police office nearby and waved him over to the scene.
The officer ordered the man to stop, but, Vega said, “The guy just stood, his head up like that with pieces of flesh in his mouth. And he growled.” The officer fired once, but the man showed no signs of stopping and the officer eventually killed him. The victim, miraculously, is alive but in critical condition.
Miami police officer Armando Aguilar told NBC 6: “Seventy-five to 80 percent of his face was missing, and he was actually swallowing pieces of the man’s face.”
The cannibal has been identified as 31-year-old Rudy Eugene, 31 is suspected to have been high on a drug known as “bath salts.” The dangerous drug, which is banned in many states, but so far has no specific federal ban, is available on the street and also at many tobacco and drug paraphernalia shops under names like Vanilla Sky, Ivory Wave, White China, Dynamite and Cloud 9.
Bath salts — a toxic cocktail of the amphetamines, Methylenedioxypyrovalerone (MDPV), mephedrone, and pyrovalerone. The Drug Enforcement Agency groups bath salts with mescaline and ephedrine, while dealers market the drug as a replacement for cocaine or a synthetic form of the hallucinogen LSD, according to CNN.
An upcoming Dutch television show will highlight two Dutch TV hosts dining on each others cooked flesh before a live studio audience. Each host chose the body part they desired to be consumed. A piece of a left butt cheek and abdomen will be on the menu this evening. After a surgeon removed the pieces of flesh a chef prepared it in sunflower oil. We do a lot of things with skin but this is defiantly not one of them!
Want to get rid of those wrinkles without paying a lot of money? Some people take at home procedures to the next level. An Illinois woman recently died of a bacterial infection after injecting her face with hot beef fat in an apparent attempt to self-treat wrinkles, ABC news reports.
The women had appeared to a local ER complaining that her face was burning after her home injections. The women had infections and scarring due to the procedure, however a autopsy later determined she died of peritonitis.
There are many people injecting themselves at home, however I would never recommend this. Check out the video below showing a segment from Studio 11 LA where I discuss other things people inject into their own face.
Do you know what “cankles” are? If not, you probably don’t have them, but if you do, you are probably pretty conscious of them, and try to hide them most of the time. “Cankles” is a term to describe a person who has thick ankles… in other words, their calf, which is usually the widest part of the leg below the knee, doesn’t taper down towards the ankles, so the lower legs are thicker, resembling tree trunks. I know, that’s a terrible, but very accurate description of this condition. Many may not know that cankles can be minimized pretty simply using liposuction under local anesthesia alone!
Watch Carmen talk about her cankles on Studio11LA on Fox 11 and see how I use liposuction to help eliminate them!
Skin Blading, also referred to as microplaning or dermaplaining, is a great exfoliation technique for the skin. Skin Blading utilizes a sterile surgical blade that is carefully stroked over the skin in even motions similar to shaving. Blading the skin painlessly removes dry, dead surface skin to reveal new, healthy skin cells. Unwanted peach fuzz may also be eliminated during treatment. As the blade is drawn across the skin, the vellus hairs, or “peach fuzz” collect together like a fine cotton ball. Many patients are often surprised to see how many of these tiny hairs are present on the face.
You may be thinking, “won’t the hairs on my face grow back thicker?” The answer is no. Skin Blading only removes the hair above the surface of the skin and does not alter the structure of the root of the hair or how it grows in.
In our previous post we coupled Skin Blading with our MiXto Fractionated CO2 laser. Skin Blading can actually be coupled with several other treatments, including a chemical peel, microdermabrasion or a stand alone procedure.
Check out the video below to see the procedure in action. [wpvideo D3WvfQM0]
