Woman Attempts Plastic Surgery On Herself

A woman in Dublin, California had to have corrective plastic surgery after deciding that she would try to save a few dollars by performing a procedure on her own face. The woman, let’s call her “Mary”, is 54, a mother of three, with a career in the public eye. She said that after a visit to a plastic surgeon, she decided to take matters into her own hands. Mary went online and bought a vial of liquid silicone for $10 then injected it herself into her lips and cheek four weeks ago.

“Insane. I can’t believe I did what I did,” she said. “I thought I was going to be happy with the results, then the next day, my face became very inflamed, very red, swollen.”

Plastic Surgery

Plastic surgeons have noted that the bad economy and the notion that plastic surgery is somehow foolproof has contributed to a recent rise in self-performed plastic surgeries. Plastic surgeon Dr. Steven Williams performed the corrective surgery and says the corrective procedure is more complicated than you might think. Because he was not sure what was injected, the process requires more than just simply sucking out the bad silicone. “It’s not something you can just draw out,” said Williams. “You actually have to go in surgically and cut it out. We don’t know what this material is, and it is actively causing serious problems for her.”

He said clearing all the material out may require several more surgeries. His patient said she hopes speaking out about her experience might make others consider the potential consequences before self-administering silicone or other substances. [via]
