Sandra ‘Pepa’ Denton has sued a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon for allegedly disfiguring her body.
The 54-year-old, who is a member of the hip-hop girl group Salt-N-Pepa, is suing Dr. David Sayah for negligence, over claims he allegedly pushed her to get three operations on her backside to fix the fallout she suffered in a July 2018 car accident.In legal documents obtained by TMZ, Sandra Denton says the wreck made the biopolymer injections she previously had in her butt and hips shift, leaving her in extreme discomfort.
The rapper also said he was referred to Dr. Sayah in Sept. 2019 to help her out, and the plan was to remove the biopolymer material and butt implants to relieve her pain.
According to the suit, the doctor initially convinced Pep to simply replace her butt implants with smaller ones because she claims he told her she would be distraught if she went back to her natural derriere.
Instead, Pep alleges that Sayah performed unsuccessful liposuction, which required yet another corrective surgery.
Before the surgery went down, she said Dr. Sayah pressured her into a different procedure which caused her buttocks to harden and knot up, making it difficult and stressful for her to perform on stage.
She claims the third and final surgery was in Feb. 2020 when Sayah finally removed the biopolymer material.
According to her, she had to visit another doctor because her butt was still hurting and, after an MRI, they discovered a “large amount of biopolymer silicone and dead scar tissue remaining.”
Pepa is suing Dr. Sayah for allegedly disfiguring her and says she’ll likely suffer from the injuries for the rest of her life.
