A Calif. woman was recovering following corrective surgery after she attempted to perform plastic surgery on her own face.
Her doctor said the tough economy and the easy availability of supplies online has caused an uptick in the potentially disfiguring practice.
The woman, is 54, a mother of three, with a career in the public eye. She said that after a visit to a plastic surgeon, she went online and bought a vial of liquid silicone for $10 then injected it into her lips and cheek four weeks ago.
"Insane. I can't believe I did what I did," she said. "I thought I was going to be happy with the results, then the next day, my face became very inflamed, very red, swollen."
