Cosmetic surgery’s popularity continues to grow with over 15 million procedures performed last year, but not all of them go well. The Doctors meet Carol whose face was severely disfigured after she got injectable fillers.
“When I looked into the mirror, I was not looking at Carol. My face was blowing up and my forehead protruded out like an alien. My forehead was becoming so heavy that it started to affect my ability to see. I began to have to tape my eyes open to walk,” Carol shares, explaining that she then underwent corrective procedures, but those only made her condition worse. She retreated from the world and avoided friends or family for over 3 years. To hide her face, she always wore hats, glasses, and scarves and has not been seen in public without wearing glasses until appearing on The Doctors.
After an extensive search for help, craniofacial surgeon Dr. Reza Jarrahy from UCLA performed corrective surgery on Carol, who says that he gave her a new chance at life. Carol, her daughter Sofia and Dr. Jarrahy join The Doctors to discuss her remarkable transformation. Dr. Jarrahy performed 3 major surgeries and numerous revision surgeries on her, including taking tissue and fat from Carol's back to completely resurface her forehead.
“I want to make sure this didn’t happen to me in vain. So, I will work tirelessly to [never] allow this to happen to anyone again,” Carol, who now works with Saving Face Initiative, tells The Doctors.
Plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon explains that everyone will react to fillers differently and in the case of silicone injections they often become an inflammatory problem for patients. The Doctors caution anyone considering any type of cosmetic surgery to make sure to see a board-certified plastic surgeon.
