Porn Star Rushed To Hospital After Lip Filler Operation Goes Wrong

A porn star said she thought she might die after a severe allergic reaction to a £300 lip job landed her in A&E.

Kirsty Collins, 33, had hyaluronidase - an acid found naturally in the body - injected into her lips to remove old filler by breaking it down.

However, the adult actor - who didn't have a patch test done to check allergies before the procedure - started to feel a burning sensation across her face. In a matter of minutes, her lips had quadrupled in size.

Kirsty, from Sheffield, said: "I knew from the get-go something wasn't right, as within seconds of the beautician injecting my upper lip, I felt this burning sensation begin to spread across my face.

"The next thing I knew, my upper lip was growing before my very eyes. I could see and feel it getting bigger and bigger.

"Luckily my manager was with me and insisted on calling an ambulance, so within half an hour I was in the emergency room."

She added: "I was so frightened, I even feared I might die."

Kirsty - known as Bambi Black by fans - was rushed to Doncaster Royal Infirmary, where she was given two shots of adrenaline, a dose of anthistamine and steroids, in a bid to control the swelling.

The adult star was discharged seven hours later.

She added: "It really made me realise that you are putting your life in the hands of someone else every time you have cosmetic work done.

"Now whenever I'm being injected with a substance I've never used before, I'll be sure to do a patch test first to ensure there isn't an adverse reaction."

But Kirsty is not stranger to cosmetic procedures, and has spent at least £30,000 on Botox, lip fillers, cheek fillers, two boob jobs, liposuction, and is currently on the waiting list for a £3,800 Brazilian butt-lift.

The actor started getting work done when she moved into the adult industry seven years ago, after leaving her career as a glamour model.

And to stay on top of her game she spends upwards of £300 for lip fillers every three months.

She said: "The industry demands that stars have cosmetic surgery, there's no two ways about it. The porn look fans want can only be achieved one way - through plastic surgery.

"If you want to stay on top of the game, you've got to beat the competition, and the only way to do that is by getting bigger and better - quite literally."

A week later he lips returned to their natural size. Kirsty then shared her harrowing story on social media and says she has been overwhelmed by the support from her fans - although not everyone has been so sympathetic.

She said: "I was touched by all the fans offering their support. But it's hard not to notice all the trolls out there, calling me 'trout pout'.

"At the end of the day this is how I choose to look, and I shouldn't be judged on that."

However, despite the judgement, Kirsty says she hasn't let the traumatic experience put her off cosmetic surgery.

"I love plastic surgery and I always will, I'm scheduled in for my next round of lip filler next week," she said.

"I've got a Brazilian butt-lift planned for later this year and I'm already looking at my third boob job.

"Knowing me, I'll be on my death bed and asking for one last nip tuck."
