Disfigured Beauty - Dermal Filler Disaster

Krysta Carson, also known as Disfigured Beauty, shares her traumatic experience with dermal filler that led to disfigurement. She had been getting filler injections for five years without any issues until the last injection in 2020. After the injection, she experienced numbness and tingling on the left side of her face, which worsened over time. Her face turned black, blistered, and eventually, a portion of her nose fell off. Krista now uses prosthetics to cover the disfigurement. In this conversation, Dr. Kate Dee and Krysta Carson discuss the complications Krysta experienced after receiving a filler injection. They talk about the specific filler used, Radiesse, and its risks. Dr. Kate explains the importance of using dissolvable fillers and having the necessary tools and knowledge to treat complications like vascular occlusion. They also discuss the lack of proper informed consent and the challenges of malpractice lawsuits. The conversation highlights the need for patients to choose qualified and knowledgeable injectors.
