Madam faces sentencing in underground cosmetic surgery death

A former madam who performed illegal “body sculpting” with low-grade silicone is set to be sentenced in the death of a London dancer.

Padge-Victoria Windslowe told jurors during her spring murder trial that fans call her “the Michelangelo of buttocks injections.”

But prosecutors say she had no medical training and used deadly products on vulnerable women who wanted more curves.

Windslowe has been in prison for three years in the 2011 death of Claudia Aderotimi.

She faces 20 to 40 years Thursday after her third-degree murder conviction.

Her lawyer says she didn’t realize the dangers of the procedure and is remorseful about her client’s death.

Windslowe admits running a transgender escort service and performed as “the Black Madam” in Gothic hip-hop videos.
