A beautician recently was sentenced to 15 years in prison after one woman died and another fell into a coma from the purported anti-aging “French polymer” the beautician injected into her customers. The beautician was in fact injecting corn oil into the buttocks of women that resulted in fat blockage and organ failure. Charges against the beautician ranged from involuntary manslaughter to practicing medicine without a license and fraud.
While injectables are many, and do offer beautifully safe results, the two most important rules of safety were broken here: only choose a qualified doctor to inject you (plastic surgeon, dermatologist, facial plastic or oculoplastic surgeon) and only allow yourself to be injected with brand-name, U.S. FDA approved injectables.
