YIKES! They don’t tell you about THIS in the consultation.
Carol Bryan, 54, from Florida, decided to have some injections to remove the lines between her eyebrows when she was in her 30s.
It all went downhill from there.
‘There came a point in time where I felt I was losing some volume. I went for a consultation. I was persuaded to have fillers.’
Two types of filler were mixed in the same syringe, including silicone which is not recommended for use as a filler because it’s permanent and extremely difficult to remove if it migrates.
After three months, Carol started to notice her face ‘expanding and contracting’, and she didn’t recognise herself when she looked in the mirror.
‘I was not looking at Carol,’ she recalled. ‘My face was blowing up and my forehead began to protrude out like an alien.
‘My forehead was becoming so heavy it started to affect my ability to see. I began to have to tape my eyes open to walk.’…
Bryan says she was ‘grossly disfigured’, blind in one eye, and suicidal. For 3 1/2 years, she secluded herself from friends and family.
She covered herself with hats, scarves, and sunglasses.
Corrective surgery only caused more damage.
Her daughter and sister wrote to teaching hospitals begging for help.
Assistance came in the form of Dr. Reza Jarrahay from UCLA who was the only one willing to take Bryan’s challenging case.
…She is now feeling more confident in her own skin after Dr Jaharry repaired some of the damage to her face.
But it involved many painful surgeries, including an operation to remove fat from Carol’s back and graft it on to her face to rebuild her forehead.
