When Plastic Surgery Goes Wrong

When Plastic Surgery Goes Wrong


Number 9 Rajee Narinesingh
In 2003, Rajee Narinesingh began transitioning from male to female and subsequently opted
for cheaper plastic surgery in order to feminize her appearance. The doctor approached for the operation was
also a member of the transgender community and a kinship developed between them. Narinesingh would eventually learn, under
horrific circumstances, that the doctor wasn’t licensed. Instead of silicone filler she’d got cosmetic
injections with a mixture of cement, mineral oil and tire sealant while the holes were
plugged up with glue. About eight months into getting the injections,
Narinesingh’s body started experiencing adverse reactions. The substances began hardening under her skin
and nodules were forming where the chemicals had been injected. It would take almost a decade and numerous
procedures for Narinesingh to have the cement removed from her body. Today’s video was requested by Subscriber

48-year-old Dawn Knight suffered from severe complications after a botched eye-lift surgery
she’d gotten at a private clinic in Birmingham, England. The woman was essentially unable to close
her eyes. She had to apply artificial tears to them
every two hours to prevent them from drying out. At night, she had to tape her eyes shut. Since she couldn’t blink properly, Knight
started developing abscesses and feared that she might go blind. Even though the surgery had been sold to Knight
as a “lifetime aftercare package”, her improperly-insured surgeon subsequently claimed
bankruptcy. Knight’s lawyers tried to reach him but
she never heard from the surgeon again. Before we continue with our list, answer this
question. What body part was the first plastic surgery
in the Western world performed on? a. Nose
b. Breasts
c. Ears
d. Chin

right answer. Number 7 Barrie Fairbairn
In 2005, Barrie Fairbairn from Leicester, England, lost part of his nose after developing
a severe infection from Bio-Alcamid filler. He was initially satisfied with the result
but, after few months, decided to have another procedure at the London-based clinic. He was left with a small bruise on his nose
but didn’t think much of it as he left the medical facility. Just a few hours later, Fairbairn was in agony. He’d suffered from tissue necrosis on the
right side of his nose after the filler had cut off the blood supply. Fairbairn could reportedly peel parts of his
nose right off. He was treated at the clinic for several weeks. The man was left with a deformed nostril and
subsequently suffered from insomnia and depression. Number 6 Carol Bryan
In 2009, Carol Bryan decided to try dermal fillers to fix what doctors described as a
loss of volume in her forehead. It would be the start of a long-lasting battle
that would leave Bryan disfigured and blind in one eye. Two different fillers, one of which was silicone,
were mixed in the same syringe and then injected into the wrong area of her face. Just a few months later, Bryan could no longer
recognize herself in the mirror. Her forehead had become swollen and it reportedly
started to leak. The corrective procedures she had only made
things worse. The first operation affected her optic nerve
and she permanently lost sight in her right eye. Her forehead got so heavy that Bryan couldn’t
see unless she held it or taped it up. Bryan separated herself from her family and
friends, hid from mirrors and reportedly contemplated suicide. Her daughter ultimately convinced her to get
help and start an arduous road to recovery. Bryan had several surgeries, the most painful
of which was a 17-hour operation that involved grafting skin from her back onto her forehead. Today’s featured fan shoutout is Instagram

In 1998, Florida woman Anne Ziegenhorn switched from silicone to saline breasts implants which,
unbeknownst to her, were held in silicone shells. Within a few years, Ziegenhorn gained 60 pounds
and started suffering from pain in her breasts, vision problems and short-term memory loss. Sores started growing on her body and she
began to bruise easily. She felt lethargic to the point that she couldn’t
even speak. Ziegenhorn saw over 23 doctors but no one
could accurately determine what was wrong with her. Incorrect diagnoses included arthritis, lupus
or thyroid problems. Then, in 2013, doctors confirmed that her
right breast implant had ruptured. They also discovered that, for years and possibly
as early as 2002, mold had been growing inside the other implant. She’d been suffering from silicone sickness
as well as a bacterial infection. Other aspects from the woman’s past then
became connected. She’d breastfed her children, thus transferring
the infection to them, and one nearly died from a severe kidney infection. Ziegenhorn was treated with potent antibiotics
and had surgery to remove her implants. Number 4 Rachael Knappier
In her teens, Rachael Knappier had suffered an accident which scarred the middle of her
top lip. In her late twenties, the woman took part
in a “Botox party” in an attempt to smooth out the lump which she’d described as her
“number one insecurity”. Knappier felt pain as the filler was injected
in the center of her lip, but the beautician told her it was normal. The following night, the 29-year-old knew
something had gone horribly wrong. Her lips tripled in size and could touch her
nose. She went to the emergency room where doctors
told her that filler had been incorrectly injected into one of her arteries. They added that she wasn’t in any immediate
danger and that her insurance didn’t cover the removal of the filler. For the next week, Knappier didn’t leave
her home and was vomiting and shaking from the pain. She then consulted a private clinic where
doctors dissolved the filler and, fortunately, her lips were back to normal in a few days. So, which was the first plastic surgery in
the Western world performed on? The right answer was a, nose. English surgeon Joseph Constantine Carpue
carried out the first rhinoplasty in the year 1815. It was based on a technique he’d observed
in India, where it had been developed centuries prior. In Europe it would become known as “Carpue’s
operation” and the reconstruction involved using a flap of skin taken from the forehead. Number 3 Bones in the Eye
An unnamed Los Angeles resident got a new type of eye-lift at a Beverly Hills clinic. The woman, who was reportedly in her sixties,
soon started experiencing adverse effects stemming from the $20,000-dollar surgery. The oddest of them was the noise that her
eyelids were making as she was closing them. The woman described it as “a sharp sound,
like a tiny castanet snapping shut”. She contacted medical professionals at The
Morrow Institute in Rancho Mirage. They found that bones had grown inside the
woman’s eyelids and the surrounding tissue. The sound she’d heard was of them grinding
together as she tried to blink. At the Beverly Hills clinic the woman had
had adult stem cells taken from the fat in her abdomen and injected into her face. The mesenchymal cells that were harvested
can turn into fat, cartilage or bone. The procedure, although fairly knew, requires
less recovery time and is arguably less scary than going under the knife. However, the surgeons had also injected her
with dermal fillers containing synthetic calcium hydroxylapatite. This substance stimulated the stem cells to
turn into bone. Fortunately, the fragments hadn’t caused
permanent damage and were successfully removed. Number 2 Angela Pedrosa
Gluteal augmentations, commonly known as the Brazilian butt lifts have become increasingly
more popular in recent years. The operation can be performed by transferring
fat from other areas of the body or through the insertion of gluteal implants. Doctors warn, however, that this can be a
risky procedure and one case from Brazil serves as a harrowing reminder. 28-year-old Angela Pedrosa had roughly 300
ml of industrial silicone injected into her rear. The tissue became infected and began to decompose. Pedrosa was left with deep craters in both
her buttocks. In order to reconstruct her mangled backside,
she underwent several operations in which fat was transferred from her abdomen. Number 1 Implant Protrudes out of Nose
An unnamed woman, who opted for plastic surgery at a clinic in southern Thailand, was horrified
when her new nose started emerging from between her eyes. She’d initially gone under the knife in
order to get a more pronounced nose shape. After the procedure, she started suffering
from infection and inflammation. Before long, the silicone implant started
revealing itself from the top of her damaged nose. She was basically left with a crater where
a part of her nose used to be. The woman sought help from medical professionals
near Bangkok, Thailand’s capital city, as the clinic responsible for the failed surgery
had refused to help her. Photos of the botched operation went viral,
with thousands sharing them online as a warning to those opting for cheap rhinoplasties. Thanks for watching! If you HAD to live without one of your senses
