I had aquamid injected in my naso labial folds four years ago, just 1ml.
Everything was fine for four years, the product looked natural although it would sometimes harden.
I have no immune problems, I'm fit and healthy, but six months ago the aquamid started to become inflamed on the right side. The inflammation reached right down to my lip, because my skin had filled with pus. I needed emergency hospital treatment where they tried to withdraw the product, pus absolutely streamed out of my face that day and quickly refilled. After eight weeks of needing the pus and product drawn every second day, I believe most of it has gone from the right side.
But now the left side is swollen and this is much, much worse.
I look grotesque, unrecognisable.
I have lost my job, because I am too disfigured to leave my flat.
My father brings me food every couple of days, I have lost my boyfriend who just could not stand to look at me anymore.
I am in constant agony.
I remember the doctor insisting he was paid in cash and trying to get me to have much more of the product injected. This was an above board clinic, although I've recently noticed on their website they are now injecting women with Amazing Gel, the product banned for disfiguring women all over China.
I pretty much lost my whole life because of this doctor.
I need to be on antibiotics constantly but they don't stop this filthy product. I am completely disfigured, my lip rarely stops swelling.
PLEASE please, anyone reading, do not use Aquamid.
I used to smile when I read bad reports and think people must have had a fake product injected, after all, mine had been fine for four years. If it can happen to me, it can happen to you, please don't use Aquamid.
I am not a muslim lady, but the only way I could leave my flat now would be in a full face veil. Everything is gone.
