It breaks my heart to read accounts like this; young, vital women in their prime, often disfigured by aesthetic treatments. Historically fillers etc were manufactured to help aesthetic providers tweak and enhance facial features but recent trends and fashion has seen their purpose distorted, no thanks to the millennial reality TV ‘stars’.
In my opinion, many practitioners must stop indulging patients’ extreme demands to stop this unsavoury and often dangerous ‘beauty’ trend. Yes results of overzealous hyaluronic acid filling can be reversed, BUT the skin in these extreme cases is never the quite the same.
Lips are packed full of nerve endings and the surface skin is naturally quite thin – and when stretched to an extreme for a length of time the skin will struggle to revert back to its normal state.
My message has to be: girls please don’t follow the crowd, and practitioners please don’t do it!
