PERMANENT LIP FILLERS LEAVE WOMAN UNABLE TO SMILE

A woman has been left unable to smile after undergoing emergency surgery to remove infected lip fillers. Fifteen years ago, Jillian Paris, 47, had Artecoll (a form of collagen) permanently injected into her lips to give her a plumper pout. But terrifyingly, last summer, her own body started to reject the fillers, causing painful lumps that were bursting through her skin. In January this year she paid £4k to undergo surgery to remove the product, but she has been left with numbness in the corners of her mouth and struggles to smile. Jillian, of Prenton, Wirral, Merseyside, says: “The product was practically pushing itself out of my mouth. I was terrified it was going to explode. “It was horrendous. I was told by the surgeon that my lips might need to be amputated - it was that bad. “My mouth is now disfigured and I've been left with no confidence - I even struggle to leave my house.”
