A woman claims her lips were left looking ‘like raw meat’ after a clinic she found online injected her with a filler ‘mixed with baby oil’.
Kerry Miles, from Chelmsford, UK, spent £250 on the half hour procedure, but said her lips were burning and blistered an hour later.
The 35-year-old mum subsequently decided to have the fillers drained and claims the doctor told her the filler appeared to be mixed with another substance like baby oil.
The model and promoter said her lips have only just returned to normal, two years on from the ordeal.
She said: “I picked a reputable clinic but I had doubts as soon as I turned up. The house was rundown and looked grubby, there was even a dog running around.
“It didn’t look very hygienic but I wanted my lips done and she had good reviews.
“She was mixing the filler in front of me and I’m certain she was using some sort of household oil. I’ve never had a reaction to filler before but this was horrific.

“I couldn’t go outdoors for days as the pain was so bad and I looked awful.
“I phoned her to complain but she told me I wasn’t drinking enough water and I should massage my lips to make them to right shape.
“I should never have trusted her with my face.”
Kerry said she was ‘so shocked’ when the doctor who drained her lips told her the filler appeared to be mixed with baby oil; but despite this traumatic experience, she has not been put off having fillers. Kerry models herself on Barbie and has spent thousands of pounds on cosmetic procedures.

She said: “I enjoy improving my body and keeping my face looking youthful. The experience has put me off getting my lips done as I still get them done now.
“I have also had Botox, vampire facials* and a nose job to try and perfect my face.”
*Give this a quick Google if you’re not sure what it is – it will be more or less grim than you expected, depending on how your mind works.
That said, Kerry is now much more careful about who she trusts with her face.
She said: “I wouldn’t warn people not to have lip fillers but I would say do your research.
“I was left feeling so embarrassed after my ordeal and now I’m always over cautious. I conduct background checks on everyone I book for my fillers now.
“I should have trusted my instincts when the house I arrived at wasn’t clean but I learnt the hard way.
“I hope others can learn from my mistakes.”
Yes lesson learnt – best not to model yourself on plastic toys with figures unobtainable to humans made from flesh and organs.
