Botched cosmetic procedure leaves woman disfigured

One woman has been left with a blind eye and collapsed forehead after her common beauty procedure went wrong.

Watch the story here.

In 2009, Florida’s Carol Bryan decided to get dermal injections in a forehead. However, the fillers were inserted incorrectly, causing her forehead to swell up so much that she couldn’t see.

‘I started doing Botox in my 30s for the vertical lines between my eyes. It was amazing. It took years off my face,” she said on television show The Doctors. But, “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.”

The doctors injected her with silicone, which is not recommended by other doctors. But a few months later, Carol’s face began swelling, “‘expanding and contracting”.

“My forehead was becoming so heavy it started to affect my ability to see. I began to have to tape my eyes open to walk,” she explained.

Stop Estheticians from Performing Laser Surgery!

Your voice is needed!
Act Now to Stop Estheticians from Performing Laser Surgery!

Patient safety is at serious risk in Oregon. Your voice is needed to help prevent possible future harm. The esthetician lobby has a significant presence and has introduced legislation that will allow non-physician estheticians to use FDA-regulated medical devices, lasers, to perform complex surgical procedures that fall squarely within the practice of medicine. Additionally, the legislation would create an independent laser esthetician board, which would have the power to expand scope of practice of laser estheticians without any oversight from the Oregon Medical Board.

Estheticians practicing medicine without the requisite medical school and residency training is a direct threat to patient safety. There are currently 14,000 licensed estheticians in the state who have been contacting their legislators and asking them to pass this legislation to help their bottom line. In order to protect the high standard of surgical care in the state, we need to inform Oregon’s legislators that laser surgery should only be performed by surgeons who have received a core medical and surgical education.
