If you are considering cosmetic or plastic surgery it is very important to have your surgery performed not only by a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon but one who has a history and reputation of high standards. A great plastic surgeon is a sculptor of the body and has to have an artistic eye and hand.
Hang Mioku: Korean plastic surgery addict who injected herself with cooking oil
One of the most famous cases of awful plastic surgery gone wrong, Hang Mioku, a 48 year-old woman from South Korea, became so addicted to plastic surgery that she was left unrecognizable after her obsession led her to inject cooking oil into her face. Her addiction to plastic surgery began when she was 28. Her face was eventually left enlarged and disfigured because of the continuous surgeries, and the surgeons she visited refused to carry out any more work on her and one suggested that her obsession could be a sign of a psychological disorder. So Hang resorted to injecting cooking oil into her face.
Viewers of Korean TV that heard Hang’s story, took mercy on her and sent in donations to help her have surgery to reduce the size of her face. During the first procedure surgeons removed 60g of foreign substance from Hang’s face and 200g from her neck.
