that's life (Australia) - - The Buzz -

Rachael Knap­pier ended up with way more lip than she bar­gained for af­ter hav­ing fillers to boost her pout. The 29-year-old was given the in­jec­tion by a beau­ti­cian at a ‘Bo­tox party’ at her friend’s house. Her lips swelled to five times their nor­mal size when the filler was pumped into an artery rather than lip tis­sue. It could have re­sulted in necro­sis, where the lip tis­sue dies. Thank­fully, Rachael caught it in time and af­ter emer­gency surgery her lips even­tu­ally went down in size. ‘I am try­ing to raise aware­ness of the dan­gers of us­ing non-med­i­cally qual­i­fied peo­ple to ad­min­is­ter Bo­tox and fillers,’ she said.
