Carmel Mitchelle Foster, pictured here from a 2009 arrest by the Tyler Police Department, is in custody on outstanding warrants related to a illegal breast augmentation performed at a salon she owns.
A customer hospitalized by an East Texas beautician's breast enhancement injections says the clear gel used oozed from the injection site until the beautician sealed the puncture with cotton and Super Glue.
Sheena Bradford was hospitalized with severe chest pain after the injection administered at Carmel Foster's Tyler beauty shop.
In a police affidavit, Bradford said Foster injected her with 12 syringes filled with the unknown clear gel on Feb. 15, her breasts immediately became swollen and the gel oozed from the sites holes until Foster sealed them.
Two days later, Bradford was hospitalized with what doctors diagnosed as built-up blood and air in her lungs.
Foster is charged with two counts of practicing medicine without a license and is in Smith County Jail in Tyler. Jail records list no attorney.
