A plastic surgery kit left a woman from the Midwest scarred after her do-it-yourself lip injections went awry. Now, she is forced to spend thousands in hopes doctors can undo the damage.  

If you want something done right, you shouldn't necessarily do it yourself.  

Case in point is a woman from the Midwest who injected her lips and face with a silicone product she purchased online. It was a do-it-yourself kit version of a product that her doctor had used to fix her facial scar and cost her all of ten dollars. But the product she injected was actually a personal lubricant rather than official medical-grade silicone.  

The woman, who asked that her name be withheld, was thrilled with the results at first. But within a single day, her face became inflamed and blistered.  

And now, rather than saving money, she is facing major medical bills to repair the damage. Fixing the problem isn't only a matter of draining the product but surgically removing the silicone under the skin, resulting in unavoidable scars.  

Many of these so-called do-it-yourself at-home cosmetic surgery products have been cited for causing health problems. And the people who buy them often don't know proper medical techniques, so they risk hurting themselves further.
