Atlanta’s airport has been heavy on social media lately with some wild and interesting experiences occurring there. A Twitter user recently went viral after documenting a parade of women who apparently went to the Caribbean to get a procedure done, and it’s a sight to see.

MTO News shared a clip of what appears to be a group of around 2 dozen women at the Santa Domingo Airport in the Dominican Republic. The women were all reportedly on the way to Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta, GA, after receiving a Brazilian Butt Lift. A video clip that went viral showed the women as they asked for wheelchairs as they awaited their flight. MTO reports that the flight apparently took 2 hours to board due to the women having complications. The video was originally posted by a Twitter user by the name of @MuvaOfGotti, who might have been one of the women in the number.
She then tweeted of the experience, “[Expletive] it’s 28 wheelchairs coming off this flight from DR and Delta losing their minds tryna find 28 personnel’s to push all these surgery b—-s off the flight,” she wrote. “GOOD EVENING, IF YOU CAN WALK PLEASE WALK,” followed by several laughing emojis. She then tweets a video of the women on the jet way as they prepare to board the flight. “Son this was the line in Santo Domingo to get to Atlanta in the airport for wheelchair (95% surgery) passengers,” wrote the Twitter user along with a video.

The women all arrived back to Atlanta safely, although it is unclear how their recovery process is going. According to a report from the Daily Mail, the Dominican Republic is considered to be one of, if not the most dangerous places to receive the procedure. There are many who opt to receive the procedure on the island due to how inexpensive it can be out there. Several cases of women who traveled out for various procedures have reportedly experienced tumultuous complications for weeks or longer periods of time following the surgery, while other cases have been sadly fatal.
The Guardian researched the topic of so many casualties occurring in Dominican Republic from surgery. The media outlet shared a story about a woman named Sharilene Cedeño who was obsessed with staying young. The 23-year-old woman flew to Dominican Republican for lipo and never returned home. Cedeño was one of 12 women from New York who passed away after undergoing surgery in DR within a six year span.
In another instance that occurred recently, a 38-year-old woman by the name of Keauna Weaver traveled to Tijuana, Mexico for liposuction and passed away, reports the Daily News. She told family members that she went to “get work done” in Florida, but according to reports, the family found out that she passed away in Mexico when it was too late.
Between June 2019 to July 2019 at least three women from New York passed away following procedures in Dominican Republic.
