Cosmetic fillers injected ANYWHERE in your face 'could leave you blind', top plastic surgeon warns

A new study from South Korea, published this week , examined the cases of nine patients around the world who suffered vision loss after having fillers injected.

The study, published in the Journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, said: “All nine patients were female, ranging in age from 26 to 45 years and in all cases hyaluronic acid fillers were injected by doctors, including board-certified plastic surgeons and dermatologists.

“Improvement of visual acuity [clarity] in patients with vascular occlusion [blood clots] after filler injection is extremely rare, and there has been no total recovery of vision after initial injury.”

Last year the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons’ (BAAPS) revealed 90 per cent of plastic surgeons recorded a rise in the number of patients being dangerously misinformed about cosmetic surgery.

The survey of the BAAPS council also found that two in five surgeons have seen problems with unregulated dermal fillers over the last three years.
