A woman has revealed she was rushed to hospital in an ambulance after her lip filler went wrong. Model J osie Aplin needed anti-inflammatory medication after the beauty treatment saw her upper lip double in size - and she says she looked like a "chipmunk".
The 20-year-old student from Australia documented her horrifying experience on TikTok. Posting as @josiecatexplinx, she shared a video with a series of photos showing the result.
"POV you booked in for lip filler," read the first picture caption. In the successive shots, she can then be seen with large lips and swollen facial features. "Looking sexy with my new filler," she quipped, before sharing a photo of herself in an ambulance on the way to hospital. She also added the hashtag #Chipmunk to her post.
Thankfully, Josie has confirmed that she is okay following the ordeal and is able to look on the funny side of things.
When her video racked up over 80,000 views, plus a number of replies from concerned viewers, she was quick to offer reassurance.
One TikTok commenter questioned how the hospital helped her, and Josie said: "They just gave me a stronger does (sic) on anti inflammatory medication hehe."
The model also claimed: "Swelling is normal as well as pain, usually just get advised to take anti inflammatory meds."
And when a different commenter asked: "Are you okay now?", she replied: "Yes!!" Elsewhere, she appeared to exchange jokes with a commenter. When one person said: "Looks so good sweatie [sic]!" she wrote: "So slay so slay."
Here in the UK, MPs have warned lip fillers must be made prescription-only like botox and that regulation is needed.
Speaking earlier this year, Jeremy Hunt said: "The Government must act urgently to end the situation where anyone can carry out non-surgical cosmetic procedures, regardless of training or qualifications.
"We heard of some distressing experiences – a conveyor belt approach with procedures carried out with no questions asked, procedures that have gone wrong, the use of filthy premises.
"It was clear throughout our inquiry that some groups are particularly vulnerable to exploitation in this growing market that has gone largely unregulated."
There is no reason to suggest J osie did not seek treatment from a qualified professional or that her treatment provider made any mistakes.
