Botox causes woman's lip to balloon after getting fillers at 'party'
LEICESTERSHIRE, ENGLAND – A woman almost lost her top lip when it ballooned up after a Botox procedure performed by an untrained beautician.
During a Botox party in August, Rachael Knappier's lips swelled three times their normal size when she had filler injected, WKMG reports.
The 29-year-old was rushed to an emergency room where doctors were able to dissolve the filler, allowing the swelling to go down in a few hours.
According to Knappier, the filler led to necrosis, which is the death of the soft tissue in the lip. She has begun a campaign to stop Botox procedures performed without a doctor present.
