A YOUNG woman had such an extreme reaction to lip filler that she was left looking like a blow-up doll.
A mum suffered such an extreme reaction to lip fillers that she looked like a 'blow-up doll' – leaving doctors 'laughing' at her 'fish lips' and her own mother worrying her 'face was ruined'.
Charis Evans had been getting filler since she was 20 as it was the 'trend' and paid £90 for her third set of injections last year – however claims she's been left unable to eat spicy food or curries without her lips ballooning again.
The support worker had decided to try a different salon and got 1ml of filler injected into both of her lips but says that within hours they had ballooned to four times their normal size and felt like they were about to burst.
Rushing to the hospital, Charis was given anti histamines and was forced to wear a mask 24/7 to hide the swelling, which the 22-year-old says were four times their normal size.
Thankfully, the swelling began to subside after a week but she is still suffering the consequences because she is forced to avoid curries as they swell again if she eats spicy food and she suffers shooting pains.

"Everyone I showed was mortified. We were wearing masks luckily so I could hide it.
''I was wearing my mask even on my break, taking a bite of my food and putting my mask back on.
"My mum was saying my face was ruined. I was scared that it wouldn't go back to normal, I was panicking. It was painful and it felt like they were popping open.
"I try avoid spicy food because every time I've eaten something spicy my mum says I look like I've had them done again because they swell and I get a burning sensation like they're stretching.
"I still get shooting pains in my lips."
Charis shared shocking photos of the swelling on social media where many of her friends were left in stitches while others told her she should never have had them done in the first place.
She has vowed to never have fillers again and says she wouldn't allow children, Sophia, two, and Bobby, seven weeks, to have them either.
Charis said: "I haven't had them since because it put me off for life. I'd never get them done again and absolutely wouldn't let the kids.
"My body just had a reaction. Sometimes you don't know what you're putting in your face.
"I do wish I'd never had them done.
"Some people found it funny and some people were like 'oh my God, what have you done?' My nan said it was my own fault.
