(NaturalNews) Six New Jersey women ended up hospitalized after having their rear ends injected with bathroom caulk in low-budget buttocks-enhancing procedures.

"Caveat emptor: Buyer beware," said Steven M. Marcus of the New Jersey Poison Information and Education System. "If it looks too cheap, there's probably a reason it's too cheap."

Although investigators remain unsure whether the six cases are connected, the incidents have raised concerns that dangerous, back-alley "butt jobs" may be more common than previously thought.

All six women checked themselves into hospitals after developing infections that rendered their backsides looking like "moonscapes," a hospital source said.

"What we've been hearing from the hospitals is that these women are presented with deep tissue infections and skin infections," said New Jersey Health Department epidemiologist Dr. Tina Tan. "Abscesses form in some cases."

Officials said the women had been injected with chemicals including petroleum jelly and nonmedical-grade silicone, or "the same stuff you use to put caulk around the bathtub," according to Marcus.

All six women were given surgery and antibiotics, and are expected to recover.

"Fortunately, these women are being treated and are recovering," Tan said. "But there is the potential for more serious complications if these infections are not treated early and properly."

Even professionally done butt jobs are not without risk. According to Gregory Borah, president of the New Jersey Society of Plastic Surgeons, these risks are a major reason that butt jobs are relatively rare.

The procedure involves a surgeon making an incision in the buttocks, then inserting medical-grade silicone in order to give the area a new shape. Borah, who is also chief of plastic surgery at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick, notes that many of his prospective patients back out after hearing about potential side effects, from scarring to the silicone shifting when they sit down, not to mention the risks posed by the anesthesia used in the procedure.
