TYLER, Texas (AP) — An East Texas woman who spent more than two weeks hospitalized after a bogus breast augmentation procedure has been discharged.

Officials say Sheena Bradford left a Longview hospital on Monday after being treated for an unknown gel injected into her breasts.

A Tyler beauty shop owner remained in custody Tuesday on two counts of practicing medicine without a license. Bond has been set at $200,000 for Carmel Foster, who was arrested late last month.

Tyler police say Bradford received injections at Foster’s shop on Feb. 15. The customer was hospitalized within days and for a time was listed as critical.

Police are still trying to identify the gel, which oozed from Bradford’s chest after the injection and Foster allegedly used glue to stop the leaks.
