The Funny but Not So Laughable After Effects of Plastic Surgery

» Introduction
Just when you thought it was safe to indulge your whimsical fantasies of a younger looking face using the latest and greatest plastic surgery techniques, you discover the tell-tale signs of injections and surgery to be blatant indicators of the ugly truth: these procedures can disfigure you and leave ugly reminders like scars, pits, unnatural lumps and bumps.

Just when you thought it was safe to indulge your whimsical fantasies of a younger looking face using the latest and greatest plastic surgery techniques, you discover the tell-tale signs of injections and surgery to be blatant indicators of the ugly truth: these procedures can disfigure you and leave ugly reminders like scars, pits, unnatural lumps and bumps.

The injecting and over-injecting along with surgical missteps have caused a new vocabulary to evolve. Simon Crompton, a health journalist for 20 years, writer and editor, who has earned many acclaims, recently introduced the following maladies in his article The Real Perils of Plastic Surgery at

Bat brow
An injection of Botox in the correct forehead muscles makes them pull up drooping brows and eyelids. Hit the wrong muscle, though, and it pulls the brow down. Putting too much Botox in can give you a startled look, known as “bat brow”, distinguished by permanently raised outer eyebrows, not unlike those displayed by Mr Spock. Fortunately, Botox wears off so the effect is usually temporary.
» Step 2
Ping Pong Face
There are around 140 injectable wrinkle fillers available in the UK and none of them are subject to the scrupulous testing required of medicines. Most are temporary, based on natural substances such as hyaluronic acid, that are reabsorbed by the body if something goes wrong. But there are also permanent fillers containing long-lasting synthetic substances, which can harden, cause obtrusive lumps and even move around. This week, 49-year-old Lea Martin spoke of how she had been left with an irremovable “lump the size of a ping pong ball in one cheek” after the injection of a permanent filler. Injecting too much filler can also result in over-inflation of the skin, known as “pillow face”.

Trout pout
Because of the actress Leslie Ash, trout pout is probably the best-known cosmetic catastrophe; Donatella Versace and Pete Burns have also had it. Most cases of overenthusiastic lip plumping are temporary because natural substances such as collagen are injected. These slowly disappear from the lips into the body. The real and permanent problems occur when synthetic substances such as tiny plastic beads are injected, causing scar tissue to grow around them and becoming almost impossible to remove without scarring the face.
» Step 3
Rock in a sock
“Encapsulation” is the most common complication of breast enhancement surgery, occurring in about 10 per cent of cases. The body does not react well to an unnatural implant — it will try to reject it by becoming inflamed and then forming scar tissue around it, so the area around the implant becomes hardened. The problem can be especially bad in women who have had children and the breast is sagging. The implant pulls the breast down farther, and the hardened implant resembles a rock in a sock.

Skewiff eyelid
Hollywood celebs love an eye-lift, designed to tighten baggy lids above and below the eye. But surgeons admit that it is tricky. If the cut eyelid is repositioned incorrectly, it can turn slightly outwards and the eye becomes prone to running. Alternatively, the lid can become too tight if too much skin or fat is removed during the operation. Correction can involve inserting implants to stretch the skin.
» Step 4
Turkey tummy
Removing too much fat with liposuction, or removing it too close to the surface of the skin, can leave the patient with dimples, irregularities, ripples and saggy skin. Many people who have lipo are not good candidates in the first place because they have too much abdominal skin — removing underlying fat only makes it sag more, leaving the midriff resembling a turkey’s neck. “Smart lipo”, which uses lasers to melt fat, reduces the problem by simultaneously tightening skin — to a limited extent.

Polly beak nose
Badly performed nose jobs can result in unwanted lumps where the cut surface of bone or cartilage pushes against the skin. One of the most common deformities after rhinoplasty is called polly beak — as in parrot nose. It occurs when the surgeon, in repositioning the nasal cartilage, leaves too much at the tip of the nose, and a break occurs between the cartilage and the bridge of the nose — making it look hooked.

Mr. Crompton has nailed the pitfalls as he discloses that a group of disfigured cosmetic procedure victims have launched a campaign in the UK to better regulate the cosmetic treatment industry. These women hope others who have experienced botched procedures will step forward to join them.
Anti-aging serums, toxins and chemicals, eyelid surgery, breast augmentation and liposuction are a partial menu of services that have been financially rewarding for medical practitioners for many years. It is time for them to be held accountable so that we can remove Revision Surgery, a by-product of botched procedures, from our vocabulary.

Funny thing though…the procedures, whether injections or surgeries are risky at best. Just remember, things can go wrong very quickly.
