A woman in Australia was left with 'horns' after a cosmetic procedure went wrong. Watch here:
Jessie Carr, from Sydney, had a fox eye procedure back in March, whereby a barbed, dissoluble suture is used to pull the skin above the eye up and out.
The procedure has increased in popularity of late, in part due to celebrities such as Bella Hadid, and Jessie paid $2,000 AUD (£1,118) for the look, which was supposed to last between 18 and 24 months.
However, it backfired badly for the 22-year-old, who said the botched procedure left her looking like 'an alien with horns'.
It also made her face swell up like an 'egg', and she said getting the procedure was her 'biggest regret'.
Now, four months on, the ordeal is not over for Jessie, as she noticed the left side of her face where the threads were initially inserted had started to turn black.
Panicked, she contacted her cosmetic surgeon to check it out and was given a steroid injection to help alleviate the dark colouring of her scar.
In a video shared on TikTok, she can be seen holding a tissue against her bleeding temple, before leaving the clinic with tape on her head.
"So, update, I went to the cosmetic surgeon and he was very, very helpful," she said in the clip.
"I was initially like I am never going back again because he's done what he can and if that doesn't work I don't expect anything else.
"But I was concerned about it turning black so I did go in and in the meantime what he has done to try and help my scar is he put a steroid injection into the area.
"I think that lightens the scar and also helps with how the scar is currently progressing."
She then filmed herself a couple of days after the injection, reporting that the inflammation had died down.
She said: "It was a bit out before but now it's sunken in. It's almost like there's an indent in my head now but I guess it's a good thing because it's not inflamed.
"And I've noticed the colour is turning back to more of a reddish colour rather than a black colour. Hopefully it goes away even more."
Jessie's ongoing updates about the procedure gone wrong have gone viral, racking up millions of views on TikTok.
One person said: "The fiasco NEVER ends."
Another wrote: "I've never met anyone who had fox eyes done and didn't have problems."
Jessie subsequently commented: "I defs am not planning to do anything else to my face after this has happened, apart from minimal filler."
