54-year-old Carol Bryan decided to get a little work done on her face. Nothing too crazy, just a procedure that entails having “fillers” placed under your skin to smooth out areas with more wrinkles than desired. Unfortunately for Carol, apparently the mixture and the placement of the fillers backfired, causing her face to look like tuna casserole.
Her face became so swollen, she apparently had to tape her eyes open just so she could see. The swelling continued and the fillers began to actually LEAK out of her face like something from a horror movie. The damage became so bad, Carol didn’t leave her house for an entire six years. She decided to finally appear on the show The Dr’s as a warning to anyone thinking about getting a similar type of surgery. And to especially do your research if you’re determined to get it.
Ohhhhh boy this is awful to witness.
“I started doing Botox in my 30s for the vertical lines between my eyes. It was amazing. It took years off my face. 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.
They caused me to become grossly disfigured. I didn’t feel comfortable going in public and I actually secluded myself from all my friends and family for three-and-a-half years.”
“I felt like a monster. I wore hats and scarves and sunglasses all the time, hoping I would someday finally be able to look in the mirror again and recognise myself.”
Luckily a doctor at the UCLA repaired some of the damage, leaving Carol to feel a bit more confident and able to leave the house regularly without feeling like a Universal Studios monster. She also added that she plans on getting her story out there to as many people so it doesn’t happen to anyone else ever again.
