Increases seen in botched surgery

 

In the article, consultant plastic surgeon Dr Siun Murphy says she is seeing more patients looking to reverse surgery or revise injectables such as filler and Botox. She also said botched surgery abroad can end up in ER with patients arriving back with septic wounds.

"It is not a regulated industry," said Dr Murphy. "There are more and more cases. A lot of it is botched lip filler. There are beauticians now teaching beauticians how to inject filler. That is a recipe for disaster."

Dr Murphy, who works at Blackrock Clinic, said in the article that facelifts were falling in popularity in favour of non-surgical procedures - a trend also apparently reported by the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons.
